In June and July 2001, I went to the Philippines to visit my friend Noah and revisit "The Peace Corps Experience."

This lengthy travelouge describes my experiences riding water buffalo, catching hermit crabs, drinking coconut wine, clinging to the roof of a van, and observing the squalor of Manila. Enjoy!
