Kalesa is a two-wheel horse-drawn carriage used in the Philippines more than half a century ago. It was a primary mode of public and private transportation during the Spanish colonial era. Now, they largely only survive as tourists attraction. They are still used today in the commercial district of chinatown and in the province of Ilocos where historical landmarks abound.

How’s your day? Stay safe everyone.
