One of the first things I noticed on my first trip to the Philippines was two goats tied to the side of a building in downtown Manila, near NAIA. It was so amusing that I took a photo of it through the cab window.
That was back in 2008, but things are still the same. There are goats everywhere in my wife’s neighborhood. They add character to the place. Well, character and goat turds in the road. They look like little black pellets and you have to keep an eye out for them while you’re walking around or you’ll accidentally track that shit into your house.
My brother-in-law has a cafe in the neighborhood across from a vacant lot. This lot typically overgrows with shrubbery and every so often it’s chopped down by some guys with machetes. The clean up crew is composed of one goat. One goat is all it takes. He ate that stuff pretty quickly.
While we’re eating at my brother-in-law’s cafe, the goat typically makes a lot of noise. It’s like he’s singing or having a conversation with someone. So, a few days ago I decided that I wanted to record him making all that noise to post on here. Unfortunately, he was feeling stubborn and wasn’t as vocal as usual, but he did talk back when I started making fun of him at the end of this video.
