    Eye on the Philippines

    Philippines - April 2012


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     JenMcTom says after the wedding, the guests returned to the bride's home village of San Felipe to celebrate over food and karaoke. The local children were the highlight of her visit: "[They] befriended us and showed us their farms, their homes, the local community center where they play basketball and video games. These girls loved fist bumps, high fives and making hearts with their hands. For us, it was amazing to feel so welcomed, especially since most of us were so far from home and were in completely unfamiliar territory."

    I attended a wedding in a small village about 4 hours north of Manila earlier this month. The dozens of village kids made the trip truly extraordinary.
