Independence Day

June 12 is Independence Day here in the Philippines. That makes it a day off of work and school. The Philippines was colonized by Spain, the US, and Japan, but on this day celebrates being an independent nation. We’re celebrating our day off by going to the mall.

We also got to watch IRRI’s flag raising ceremony including performances by the IRRI international school children.103_0307
