Welcome to the Philippines!

Hello from Manila!

I arrived in the Philippines late saturday night at around 23:30 and was greeted by my grandfather and grandmother. On Sunday, we drove around Parañaque to see the location of the Tuloy Foundation and to also visit some of the malls to pick up a few items.

Later that night, I had the opportunity to have dinner with member of my family that I have never met before including my uncle and three cousins:

Tomorrow I begin my service work at the Tuloy Foundation. My project director has this whole week scheduled for orientation so I can better understand the physical layout of the Tuloy foundation, how their program works, meet some of the students, etc.

I’ll post about my first day at the Tuloy Foundation once I get back!

  1. I’m so glad you are including pictures, and how exciting for you to meet your mother’s family. Looking forward to hearing about your first days at Tuloy.
