Since this is my last entry about the Philippines I feel compelled to say this. I have met here some of the happiest, most welcoming, honest and hard working people in the world. Too bad their government is so corrupt for I strongly feel that the people of the Philippines are capable of great achievement
I must also say this: it is here in the Philippines that I met the most weirdo travelers anywhere in the world. Sex tourism appears to be rampant around here. Bangkok and the whole of Thailand are nothing compare to this. I saw countless Army Retiree looking Westerners in their 40's to 60's with a girl that barely looked 20. Sometimes much younger. Frankly disgusting.
Keep going my friend Philippinos, you have a beautiful country and the best attitude I've ever seen. Your day will come.
