                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Back in early December, Leah and I had the opportunity to leave Manila for the weekend and enjoy a few days in Subic Bay. Our friend Dior who teaches third grade at an international school in Subic, invited us to talk to her students about American culture.

Her students were so sweet, and they were all eager to learn about American culture. We talked about the 4th of July and all the traditions that surround our Independence Day celebration.

We also introduced the students to one of the greatest achievements in American cuisine, the s’more. The students were able to construct their own chocolate, marshmallow, graham cracker treat, and then we nuked them in the microwave for about ten seconds. The students had a blast getting to sample this delicious American snack!

the 3rd graders loved the smores.

Along with our visit to Brent School, we were also able to see some of the sites around Subic. We visited the Zoobic Safari where we were able to encounter some native and some not-so-native animals. I was also able to pick up a few gifts for family back home. I found some killer hand-made bow and arrows that mom took home to my cousins Bryce and Luke.

Spending a few quiet days out of the hussle and bussle of Manila was magical!
