Poverty in Manila

At a recent trip to Manila, I was able to tour a Gawad Kalinga (www.gk1world.org) community built on a landfill. This is one of my favorite photos from the trip. ”

Before and After

Yup, that’s me in the lower left of the 2008 crossfit collage for Crossfit Eastside.  Happy New Year to my friends there and I’m looking forward to a great 2009 working out with you.
