I was there in that little room of the house listening intently at every word Manong Dolfo was saying. Manong Dolfo is the brother-in-law of our host family, the Obejos. At first, he was pouring all the hardships in his life. He was saying how hard life is to the point that once one stops working it might be the end of the person's survival.

Their pathway is not cemented and whenever someone in the neighborhood washes clothes the pathway gets wet and eventually muddy. It has always been like that.
