Philippa  "We live in a beautiful world..."

Sunday Sunset. #volcano #mtmayon #philippines #travel #sunset [fun fact I just learned: this volcano is named after a princess-heroine from a local legend. The story goes something like this: the princess-heroine fell in love with a man who saved her from drowning. However, a haughty, boastful, warrior-man wanted to marry her instead so started a war for her heart. During a battle, the princess-heroine’s true love was killed by an arrow and, heartbroken, she killed herself over his body. Her father buried them together and they grew into a volcano, punishing the people/ man who tried to keep them apart. Damn. This volcano/ princess-heroine does not f*ck around.]

Washing gravel with a million dollar smile. #thefutureisfemale ... [real talk: a small group of women completed a full day of manual labor today, prepping the last of the materials to build their first water filter. A few men wandered in and out but the women barely stopped working. There was barely a complaint or a crack in their dedication. Not sure I would be smiling this big after a day of shoveling rocks and sand. These women are beyond badass!] #philippines
