I have to start out by saying that I love the Philippines. This is an almost universal sentiment of anyone who is from there, or has visited there. But I will also express criticisms of some things (such as the well known problem with corruption, for example).

The capital is Manila, on Luzon (the northern largest island). About 80% of the Philippine people are Catholic. Tagalog (or Filipino) is the national language, with English widely used (the courts and college-level education is in English, as are the large newspapers in Manila).

I first went to the Philippines in 2004, and stayed six months. I went to meet a friend, but we are now married (Arlene Gregerson). I stayed in Luzon (living in Pampanga), but I traveled to Ilocos Norte twice, to see Arlene's family home (video showing Las Ud). I stopped in Tarlac, La Union, Vigan, and visited many parts of Manila (Tatalon, Tondo, R10, Edsa, Intramuros, Divisoria, Santa Mesa, and Makati). South of Manila, I went to Cavite and Tagaytay.
