Philippine Way…

Hi my friends,

time is passing by and the world moves on everyday :)

What a great start to a new blog. Here in Bondoc Peninsula is happening so much. Many kids, many coco nuts and smiling in the faces of the people we meet. Last week Tanja and me went into the so called area. We went to a farmer who is living in a small place two hours away from mulanay. We spent the night in his house – a pretty simple place. He told us about his life and the dangers he survived in his life. That were definitly tough experiences he had to face.

The next day day we observed a hearing between in a farmer and a landowner at the department of agrarian reform in buenavista. The people were explaining their situation and an official staff member from the department was giving comments and making a report. We did this as well and for me it was a real new experience. I think you have to get used to the fact that you observe and report a situation which is more than serious to the participating persons.

On our way back to mulanay we drove with 4 people on a motorbike. Pretty amazing :)

The next day we made a trip to Lucena City :)

Stay tuned,

First Week…

Hi my friends,

since one week we are in the philippines now. It`s great and you can feel the heat on your skin. The first days we have been in Quezon City. The City never seems to sleep. You have noise all day and night. But you can get used to it. :) In the beginning we had a lot of seminars to get into the topic. Our topic is to observe human rights violations.

Meeting of Farmers and Farmerleaders with IPON
