Today I ventured out to the edge of the city of Naga and took a ride on a very nice ride through the rice fields on the rails. Besides the urban trains, this was my first ride on the rails in the Philippines. However, this was no ordinary ride. Locally called "Skates" these bamboo carts sit on car bearings with no suspension and are powered by invented motors with a manual-pressure-on-belt style drive. The video below will help illustrate. Enjoy!
