With cut and callused hands the size of a baseball mitts,this boat repairman greeted me with an open smile despite the sign that hung next to him.

As I looked around all I could see was carnage and destruction reaped upon every boat in view from hurricane #Yolanda.

Despite experiencing huge losses almost every Filipino person I met had such a welcoming and joyful personality on Bantayan Island.

I hope the recovery process is still going well and I get to visit my friends there again soon.
