Duha ka tuig- 2 years

I first arrived in the Philippines two years ago, on July 7th, 2013.  If my Peace Corps service were a bottle of wine (or perhaps a box) it would now officially be considered ‘vintage’ or ‘fancy’, dare I say it- over ten dollars fancy. And, just like that fine bottle of wine I have aged (a lot), but hopefully in the good way- becoming a bit more mature, complex, and definitely darker. Ironically, since joining the Peace Corps I have also become much more tech savvy, now having multiple types of ‘social-media’, effortlessly downloading things off the internet (when I have signal), and even owning my first ever smart-phone (thank you Heather). My China-phone (as my Filipino coworkers call it) now allows me to capture snap shots of day-to-day life, which depending on the day can fluctuate between weird and extremely weird, though recently I have come to realize that I am the weird element; below is a collage of June life.

On my way to Boracay I visited Jack’s site (Tangalan, Aklan), Jack is helping to establish a community managed eco-park in Tangalan’s old-growth mangrove forests.
