Last night we had dinner with the govenrnor. She was very friendly. I realized how much Philipnos love music. They sang and danced all night. This morning we went out to see some of the patiets from two years ago. It was really neat to see their houses. Both of the people we saw lived in little huts. The two girls who had recieved the surgery looked amazing. They both had huge smiles and one called out, “My American friends” as we walked up to her house. The families were extremely hospitible. They made us food at both houses. It was cool to see families who have so little offer us so much. Bernie, our guide told us that hospitality was a huge part of Philipino culture. Later we wrote more stories of the children. One child walked six hours by himself to get to the hospital.
