My trip is now officially coming to an end.  I am leaving for the airport in about 2 and a half hours.  This summer has really changed my life.  I hope each of you will also take something away from sharing my trip with me.  I will be back in that States by 2 pm Monday.  I will see you all soon. :)

Mike and Maggie on

Hi Elsa,

My wife and I just read your entire travel blog from your trip to the philippines, and really enjoyed it, and just wanted to let you know. We live in Riverhead, New York... My wife is Filipino and grew up near the SOS Orphanage... We were looking at maps of the neighborhood, and then she remembered that the orphanage was nearby (she used to ride her bike to it when she was a little girl), so we looked up the orphanage, and came across your blog, and started looking at the pictures, then got sucked into the blog, and an hour and a half later, we finished your entire story. It was interesting for me, since I have never been to the Philippines, to hear such well written detail on the area, and the experience, and I wanted to thank you for that. Besides that, we were both very touched by your caring spirit and kind heart, and enjoyed reading about the different children and expereinces... I'm sure I'll be able to get out to the Philippines some day... we're currently planning to make it out there in March of next year, but your account was very enlightening in the meantime.. Thank you again, Mike & Maggie.

Mike and Maggie,
I have not checked back on my blog in so long, I hope you end up reading this. Thank you so much for your comment, I don't believe I've seen it until now. I hope your trip went wonderfully. I actually ended up signing in because I will be going on my next trip to the Philippines this July; so I wanted to make sure I could get another blog started. Thanks again and God Bless.
