Little by little, one travels far

“Hobbit House would be just another bar in Ermita [Manila-Philippines] were it not for the little people. Friendly, charming and very smiling, they are the reason why the bar is what it is today.” (from the Hobbit House website)

Inspired by the books of JRR Tolkien, the Hobbit House is a well-known bar placed in Malate, one of the most bustling areas of Manila (Philippines). At the bar we can find illustrations from the Lord of the Rings, paintings of elves and goblins among other footage related to little people topic. But the staff makes the difference, of course. Because any of the waiters is higher than 120 cm.

During the next weeks I will try to explore, in collaboration with Eric San Juan, the life of the community of the little people of Manila. Their desires, aspirations, feelings, complains…

The Little [BIG] Project.
