After that last whingey post, here’s something, before I get back to posting about China, to highlight one of the things I loved most about the Philippines: Filipinos!
Just about everyone we interacted with was so friendly, smiley and welcoming.
And a lot of them were also camera hogs. 😉 It’s been a while since I’ve had people stopping me to ask to take their picture. I don’t think anything will ever compete with the snap-happy Indians, but Filipinos are strong seconds for hamming it up in front of the camera. Here are the “snaps” I took during our time on the islands.
The parade in Dumaguete remains one of the highlights of our month in the Philippines. I wandered around the area where the students were setting up and got called over to snap some shots. This one is musicians on a truck (being on a moving vehicle is no barrier to posing for the camera!).
Gotta love the glitter!!
More poses from mid-drive. 🙂

This was at the lovely church in Dumaguete. The woman on the left tweaked my nose while telling me I was pretty and grilling me about when I was going to start having babies with Roman.
