Yesterday, we went to the landfill in Dagupan, Philippines. There is a village there where people scavenge for garbage and sell it for a living. Now, there are some upsides. It’s located near the beach, which is a decent one. And there’s a cemetery nearby, which is kept clean.
But still… not the best.
Anyway, the area’s director showed the little girls doing a dance routine. It was a little bit of something you might see Beyonce do, and it was nicely choreographed.
Later, when we went to check out the beach, we ran into the girls again. They were practicing their routine on the biggest nearby stage… a tomb at the local cemetery. And they were doing the routine with so much joy in their faces.
It goes to show you, life ain’t so tough when you have the music in your heart.
