Greetings islanders! Currently here in Manila for a business meeting and I witnessed the overwhelming welcome of the Filipinos for Pope Francis who just had his 5-day visit to the Philippines. Thousands cheered and took photos of the pontiff as he traversed the streets of Manila inside his pope mobile. I was staying in a hotel across the main boulevard and I can see from my balcony the whole street full of people carrying flags and chanting for the Pope. I was able to witness how a country like Philippines who’s battered with disasters and beleaguered with poverty and corruption can still come as one to cheer for Pope Francis. Truly an unforgettable experience for me Smile

Yeah I know all this. I also met Pope Francis in the meeting room. He really has a great personality. He always thinks for other people. I was very inspired by his speech. It was an unforgettable experience for me too!
