Last night in Boracay
It was almost massive overload to come to this obvious busy resort after 2 weeks of dealing with very poor women and limited local foods. It felt good to not take it for granted and really understand the contrast. Going out on the beach strip tonight to have Italian food and celebrate the last night the Fantastic 5 Ninja Midwives are together. A few are staying to Wed, with 2 flying back to Oregon and 2 others continuing on their trip to thailand and cambodia. We have been discussing travel and how it seems Europeans do more traveling and plan more trips abroad quite often--living in small places and and saving money as the means to traveling a lot. Traveling every year is often done as opposed to lots of material things or owning new cars. Interesting concepts of what is important to a culture.
