After the storm

Typhoons are part of Filipino life. The first one of the season, Conson, crossed the Philippines last week, on its way towards the South China Sea. Only its fringes touched Manila but that was enough to leave us without electricity for over 24 hours. Airports and schools had to close too. In the provinces where it hit harder the death toll has reached seventy people, with over eighty missing. Many of them were fishermen caught in the sea.
