the best Christmas party ever!

This year, the school children of Lorenzo Daa Memorial School experienced a Christmas party that’s so different from what they have been used to.  Situated in sitio Paglaum, a remote area 40 kilometers from downtown Tacloban, the school has a population of 200 pupils and students.  Most of these school children had no idea what a party is like for the average city kid until now.

With sweet treats and entertainment filling up the whole day, these kids probably had their best Christmas party ever, courtesy of the Rotary Club of Tacloban.

This might be my last post for the year, so here’s a very Merry Christmas to all of you.  It’s been a long time since I’ve taken family photos and I’ve got a lot of catching up to do.
