The Falmouth Outlook traveled with Rob Yelton on vacation to Manila in the Philippines from July 11-19. Manila is the second largest city and capital of the country. While there, Rob stayed with locals from a small village in the mountains near Barangay and Caloocan. He stated that the highlights of his visit were having the opportunity to learn the local customs and culture and meeting the people from the area. A massive typhoon with winds surpassing 160 mph struck near Taal Volcano during his stay causing extreme damage and devastating the city. Despite the tragedy, Rob described his trip as “extraordinary.” Pictured from left: Rob Yelton is shown holding The Outlook with one of the locals in the village where he stayed.
