No $150 cross fit shoes needed for these feet.

Yesterday we delivered 300 @wattsoflove solar lights to a remote Mangyan village. The Mangyan’s are the first native people to live in Mindoro and still live a very primitive life. The Mangyan’s would be similar to Native American Indians in the US.

It was a 4 mile round trip trek up a steep and rocky mountain in the blistering sun. Because it was so steep, it was as hard coming down as it was going up.
I will admit it was pretty humbling seeing adults and kids in flip flops or bare feet pass us up as we struggled in out latest high-teck hiking shoes.

Good thing the kalabaw’s (water buffalo’s) carrying our solar lights didn’t seem to mind the terrain or heat. Mooow!
