Byahe tayo sa Pinas/Lets travel to the Philippines

Looking out of our dining room window, we can see the Catalina Mountains in Tucson with sunny blue skies. It’s an awesome sight, but it lacks one crucial aspect. Where’s the beach? Two emails I recently received stress this absence and need. One email forwards a video link on visiting the Philippines. Another, by a friend, asks about my last trip to Manila and whether I miss it already. Well Bea, looking at these ‘recently old’ videos on the Philippines, what can I say?

Check out these awesome videos.

Byahe tayo, the music video. Twenty-one Filipino artists singing about the beauty of the Philippines. Great scenery shots. Video can be downloaded for free from the Philippine Department of Tourism website at http://www.wowphilippines.com.ph/index.asp.
