Manila, Philippines (Celebrity Millennium)

Second day in the Philippines we drove through the sprawl of Metro Manila and then a few hours out into the countryside to Hidden Valley Springs, a rain forest preserve at the base of a dormant volcano from which flow several mineral springs. 

We hiked out to the waterfall there (which appears at right), bathed in the warmest of the pools, and had a Filipino lunch before riding back to the port and departing that evening. 

A glimpse of Metro Manila, about half of which consists of slums, can be seen here.
