Thanks Hobby Shooter, yea, but the only people that want to listen to old guys telling war stories, are other Old guys that tell war stories.
First, at 60 you're not that old, and secondly, I have enjoyed some great times and stories with guys that were in this part of the world around that time. Some of the stories are fascinating.
On the other hand there have been a few moments in Manila, down Bugos street, where supposed ex-Special Ops/Pick Your Agency (as long as it is American, has three letters and starts with a C) have raised a few hairs. In fact one guy down there is quite well known for being a little unstable, something you are quite obviously not.
And yes, the tile floors and stool seats are a dead giveaway that this is not an exterior location, so good luck arguing with me.
I do not know why I am replying to this, as I do not see the point of your post. But to give you an idea of the location of the shot. It is outside in that there are three floors, all the thoroughfare looks down into the courtyard area and is all public, so you can wander around and never buy a beer anywhere if you do not want. The bars all run round the outside of the thoroughfare. If it rains you get wet, and those stools normally get put inside the bar when it closes.
Oh, and there is not a single girl in that first shot (except for possibly the one in the red dress with her back to the camera). Just so you know.... :-)
