EDSA: Epifanio de los Santos Avenue
On a clear night you can see poreber. EDSA's legendary rush hour traffic has earned it the meme-name of "ang pambansang forever" (the national constant). On epic days, it might take you a couple of hours to get through even just a portion of its 23 kilometer length. Sitting hungry, antsy and frustrated in a car crawling through one of its many bottlenecks is, for sure, a definitive way to experience harsh reality in Metro Manila.
While everyone will (rightfully) rant and complain about EDSA (and for that matter, the megalopolis' hell-on-earth traffic), imagine how different and much more messed up life would be if we didn't have EDSA. We'd probably be all going through Nagtahan bridge to traverse between Manila's north and south sides. There would be no EDSA Revolution. There would be no epic triumvirate of malls (Robinson's Galleria, SM Megamall, EDSA Shangrila) nor there be shoppers' corridor - how many malls are directly connected to EDSA? There would be one less source of truly non-sense memes.
For all the complaints and bad vibes it has generated, EDSA remains the one clear canvass where Filipino ingenuity and creativity is eagerly being awaited. I don't know if such genius will arrive in this generation or the next. EDSA is the perfect problem to solve and is quite emblematic of our progress as a society. At the rate this is crawling (pun intended)...EDSA truly deserves it's humorless monicker.
