As part of the tour experience and as citizens of a democratic country, we entertain the questions our guests have, and we do try to answer them with the best of our capabilities. In fact, we always hoped that the education we impart to our guests of how some of the Filipinos live will aide them (our guests and the Filipinos living in the area) to the road of enlightenment. In fact, one question most likely asked from the guests is "Why are the poor happy even if they live in such an impoverished area?"
Surprisingly, Melanie one of our tour leaders who lives at BASECO, had an excellent answer during our tour leader meeting last 30 October 2018. It is so excellent that we think it is deserving to be shared. We got so inspired that we hope you will too! 😊
