First Day in the Philippines
We are staying on this awesome resort island...it has a mini zoo, butterfly sanctuary, water park, putt-putt golf, and a ton of other stuff. This Peace Corps business is really difficult I tell you! Just kidding...it's going to get a lot different in about 5 days. Tomorrow I have an interview with my regional manager. I'm not exactly sure what that means yet, but he/she is the one who places me in post.
I continue to meet a ton of different volunteers everyday. Everyone has such interesting stories and backgrounds. Tonight we went to a "fishing village" that overlooked the bay. It was incredible. We waited until the sun set and then went to another really cool location on the resort for dinner. I had my first experience with Filipino food...I asked for a piece of fish and when I looked on my plate, there was an eye staring up at me! I at least tried it, but that was all.
There is air conditioning in all of our rooms so we are being spoiled. Jet lag has started to take its toll and I'm about ready to crash for the night. It's only 7:30 p.m. on Friday, April 1. They're keeping us pretty busy in the mornings with informational meetings. Hopefully soon, I'll be able to get to Manila and see what the city is like. I'm off to bed!
