A little tidbit of 'J' info for today:
Juan dela Cruz is used in the Philippines like John Doe is used in the U.S.A. dela Cruz is one of the most common Filipino last names, much like Smith or Jones in English.
Jeepneys, or jeeps (actually spelled 'dyip' in Tagalog) are the cheapest mode of public transportation here. The original jeepney was made from old military vehicles that the Americans left behind. Newer ones are now manufactured here. For about 17 cents you can ride up to 3km and tell the driver to stop where ever you want him to as long as it is along his route. I take these all the time because we don't have a vehicle and we live right along a main road where they pass by day and night. My kids love riding jeeps- you can feel the wind in your hair provided you're not stuck in traffic!
