Not enchanting visit

Part of the field trip's itinerary yesterday was Enchanted Kingdom. But hell yeh, we arrived past 3 o'clock in the afternoon due to heavy traffic along South Luzon Expressway, particularly from Makati up to Bicutan. When we reached the amusement park there were lot's of tourist buses and the main parking was already full that we were transported on the second parking area too far from the entrance.

I knew we would not enjoy it because of the enormous number of visitors as if it was still December. Come to think of it, we only have 3 hours and a half inside the park and it took us almost an hour just for one ride.

No, I'm not ranting about Enchanted Kingdom. I'm just disgusted how the school and tour guides handled the schedule. As early as we loaded the bus, the guide already discussed if we parents wanted to disregard visiting a place (don't want to mention it) included in their itinerary.

Some agreed so we could reach San Pedro, Laguna by 1 o'clock in the afternoon - or 2. But we still arrived too late.

And another, we were supposed to be touring inside Zoori's Adventure because it was also included in our itinerary but it was disappointing to know that we have to shell out some money for the ticket.

Where does the money we paid for the field trip went to? The fact that it was included in the places to visit so I know that it's also included in the amount we paid for.

This is just a sad example of commercialized education.
