Quentin Tarantino takes pedicab to Manila awards ceremony
MANILA, Philippines (AP) - Quentin Tarantino was forced to hop into a pedicab to escape gridlock on flooded Manila streets Wednesday as he made his way to the presidential palace to receive a film award.
Tarantinoâ€™s limousine had been stuck in traffic for about 2 1/2 hours on a bridge close to Malacanang palace when Filipino filmmaker Amable (Tikoy) Aguiluz suggested they take separate pedicabs (cycle rickshaws). About 15 minutes later, they reached a street corner near the palace gates where a car picked them up, Tarantino said.
“It was a lot of fun. Itâ€™s the way it is, I guess. … It was wild,” he told reporters. "No worries. Iâ€™ve done more serious things than that."
