It was too short of a trip to formulate any meaningful opinion about Philippines other than recognizing the admirable work ethics of the local team that we worked with. However, the country still strangely reminded me of Kenya with the roadside development in rural areas and strong emphasize of the christianity (we were invited to pray before and after the meetings). Philippines has a very different vibe compared to other Asian countries that I have been to. So grateful for the opportunity to visit these lesser known regions in Asia and work with and learn from the local teams.
