It was quite the audition process; very physical.
So long ago this all seemed. This was sometime in 2004 when I was auditioning for Spider-man. Unfortunately I didn't get the part. Not even a callback!
Seriously, I went with a few friends one Saturday afternoon to the Veterans Freedom Party grounds in Manila for some wall climbing and rappelling. This was during the early stages of my short-lived hobby that was mountaineering, when I was still in a seemingly perennial "Let's go!" state.
Rappelling after successfully scaling up the wall.
The gang. The guy in the green and black striped polo was our host. Forgot his name, though.
Now I wonder if that wall is still around.
