It’s been ten days since Haiyan, and only now have I been relocated to Manila.
No one expected that big a storm—no one. When the storm surge came in, we were all shocked. I’m just happy to be alive.
Over a week of clearing away stray debris and all manners of physical labor—there wasn’t even a proper night of sleep. The people are everywhere—everyone is trying to leave the city. No electricity and no water. It seems it’ll be a long while before I start feeling sane again.
