It’s summer in the Philippines and the advent of the same season in some other countries. By now, a lot of North Americans are desperately punching their keys in search for cheap flights. I hope that our Palawan, Tubataha, Boracay and a few other destinations get a surge in tourist arrivals and I hope that those vacationers will spend a lot of money that will provide the much needed income for our people. I am not talking exclusively about the expensive hotels. I wish that the lonely barbecue stands by the beach also makes good honest money this vacation.
