Nothing is what it used to at the camp these days. I miss the food, the hotel-like accommodations with the towels and soap, the food, the convenience of facilities, and the speed by which clothes come back clean the day after I put them in the laundry hamper. I hear a radical redirection of funds is the main cause of all this. But I’m not complaining. It’s still the same friendly and hospitable people, the same smiles and desire to help each other and their community. I was there for five days training new hires on how word processing, spreadsheets and presentations can make their work more efficient. I’m back in Manila now, but I will be back there for the next leg of the corporate social responsibility program where we work hand in hand with our client. They provide money for computers, and we provide the computers and training. It’s one of the most fulfilling things I have ever done in my whole life so far.
Life begins at home
