User:Diego de Manila
I don't feel like writing a full bio right now, so let's start with the basics:
- I live in the Philippines.
- I'm fluent in English and Filipino (Tagalog). I can speak/read/write a little Japanese (JLPT3-level stuff is fine, but at the moment I can't handle anything more advanced).
- I've been to Italy, Japan, Macau, Hong Kong, and Singapore.
- I'm also working on the district travel guide for Intramuros, the walled Spanish colonial city in the heart of Manila. That place has seen better days - mostly before the Battle of Manila in 1945, when the Americans and the Japanese turned the area into a gigantic pile of rubble - but what's left is still worth seeing, and I'd like to do my best to get the word out through Wikitravel.
- As a logical extension to my work on Intramuros, I'm also slowly making my mark on the other district pages under the Manila and Metro Manila guides. I don't think I'll be able to overhaul them completely - I'll leave that to the wider community! - but I'll do my best to tidy up some sections and add/edit information as needed.
- I'm a solo traveller by preference. Being herded from place to place in a tourist bus is not my idea of a dream holiday. (^_^)
Wikitravel helped out a lot when I was planning my previous trips to Japan, and contributing is my way of saying thanks.
Please feel free to call my attention if you think I'm doing something wrong - or right. I'm new here, so I'll take all the (good) advice I can get.
