Welfareville

Last evening, my friend Narry Santos and I wandered for a few hours through Welfareville. Really – that’s what the folks here call a massive squatter officially known as Addition Hill, near downtown Manila. What a hopeless name for a slum!

Care for a cup of tea?

It’s been a few weeks since I posted on Wordeed. I’ve missed blogging. Mostly, I have been away from the office, enjoying the charm and beauty of Eastern Canada on a very long but enjoyable road trip.  As my wife and I drove almost 7,000 km with dear friends from the UK and France, drinking […]
