Where to start? At the beginning I guess?

March 1st, Peace Corps Day, now 51 years old, thank you JFK!
Presentation I gave to teachers about the Peace Corps

Adventures in Manila included a trip to see the Black Nazarene of Quiapo, the Muslim Town (where we ate with our hands and all the onlookers were amused) and handmade crafts under the bridge of Quiapo (plus we had two days of inservice PC training and 3 days of PDM (project development and management training) at Island Cove Resort near Manila.
Inside the famous church of Quiapo with Black Nazarene center

Vendor selling tobacco and betel nut products

Devotees praying for healing as they touch the Black Nazarene outside the church

Comic dress up day at the local mall, how come all the Asian folks are thin eating rice??

My counterpart Veron and I, so many interesting animals!

So much to say for March 1-11 only, next time Visita Eglecia, visita Pimenta Bukid and more. Who knew volunteering could be so busy - yes, plus I go to school everyday!!!
