These photos were taken the day Manny Pacquiao arrived in Manila after his fight with Cotto in Las Vegas. His motorcade passed right in front of my sister’s office building. I did not bring my dslr but was able to borrow a point and shoot camera.
I do not know much about Pacquiao. So, I grabbed the information below from Wikipedia.
