I wrote in my last post about our visit to Teresa in the town of Bugasong in Antique Province on the island of Panay.  Here’s a photo of her bahay kubo before Typhoon Yolanda arrived in November, 2013.  This is the bamboo home that was left leaning over by the storm, now replaced by a cinder block house.

Teresa's former home in Bugasong, made of bamboo, with a roof of palm leaves and galvanized iron sheets.
