Sorry it’s been so long since we’ve written. Hope you weren’t too worried, Mom. So we’re back in Bagabag even though we’d planned to be in Davao with Scott & Carrie at this point. But due to rain today, we departed Palanan (a tiny village on the northeastern point of Luzon) for Bagabag (leg 1 [...]

I managed to upload a small album of photos from our time in Singapore. I tried to pick out a varied set to give a flavor of some of the things we saw while there. I have more detailed notes about some of these shots which eventually I will put up, but for now check [...]

Wednesday was our first visit out to a village (actually two towns). It was a really, really good day … just really exhausting! We are hoping that the next 3 places we visit will be a bit less intense, since we’ll be spending 2-3 days in each place (rather than just one, which was what [...]

For one thing, we found out today that (since we’ve never been here [...]

Here are some screen shots: The Philippines in the center, with surrounding area. Manila is on the island of Luzon, the northernmost island of the Philippines. Cainta is the part [...]

Safe in Manila
