My first full day in the Philippines was spent with an Aeta tribe. Chieftain Sevilla and his family are friends of our host Kenneth and his family. The village consists of 300 families who live closely together in colorfully painted homes. Most families have pigs, goats, and chicken who either wander around or are tied to a tree. There are also wild boar who roam in from the mountain and walk in the town. Some families keep racing pigeons. They race these pigeons several times a year. They are warm and welcoming people and It was a pleasure to visit with them and see how they live.
