The initial plan was to stay for 3 weeks in Olango. But we changed our plan and stayed for only two. Instead, we stayed an extra week in Davao. The circumstances were hard on Olango island. There is hardly any work, the waste system is rudimentary and the schools seem to be a way of keeping the children somewhere inside instead of actually learning them something. Many nights we had no electricity, and some people lived in a mere shag. But it wasn’t hard to make friends. Everyday the same gang of kids would show up and come to play. The first weekend we made this little fun film and the kids were laughing so much!
