Money thoughts

PhilippinesPeople in Kapehang live on practically nothing. Some have a family member who drives a tricycle (motorcycle with sidecar) at which they can expect to bring home about 90 pesos a day. Some fish (the ocean is only a couple of kilometers away) and some raise vegetables.

My room at the resort costs 200 pesos a day (a little under $4). Meals from the menu add another 200-300 pesos a day. That makes a month’s room and board here about 15000 pesos (about $300.)
