Stressed and Back Again!
Here I am during the ‘Bike Tour’, the 5-day biking environmental program that we (YAFE) had been creating, planning, living and breathing for the last 6 months. Notice the slouching shoulders, the stressed smile, the hair pulled back tight. Whoah!! And my counter part, Jelyn, looks likes she’s going to pass out or quit in a minute! I think we need a vacation! And that is exactly what we did after the closing ceremonies of this event.
There we go! That’s a little better. A fullon sarcastic smile (the waves to you mom and dad!), my favorite (scandalous) outfit consisting of overalls and my bikini top and feeling like the 24 year old American that I am! What a great feeling that is!
And who else do we have on this crazy adventure? This spunky character is Caty. She’s a thoughtful, fun loving individual with a little craziness in her! Perfect for an adventure and a good friend to talk to about some problems.
Next, we have Miss. Kristine. Kris and I have been together since training. We ended up in the same training town and so have been though a lot together. She’s part environmentalist, part dolphin but 100% fun! She’s a great playmate and textmate (I mean friend)
This then is a picture of the 3 buddies who share a friendship that helps us continue through this 2 year commitment. Here we are on the beach. We like the beach. We are now at Olga’s site in Southern Leyte. Her apt is in a town about 15 min. away from the beach we are sitting on, but don’t let this fool you. Her front gate opens to a street, and on the opposite side is the ocean. Man, oh man, somehow I feel a bit screwed.
Here is the view from our perspective. Nice huh? Whose that in the water? A superwoman? No.. thats just Olga!
More to come on the adventures of the past holidays....
