Anna Halpine, President and Founder of the World Youth Alliance, visited Manila last May. Finding time in their busy training schedules, Anna and other members of WYA toured the Walled City of Intramuros in Manila. The humorous, informative analysis of Carlos Celdran (http://celdrantours.blogspot.com) is an excellent way to dive into Philippine history, art, and culture. The richness of Philippine history and the fusion of cultures that make up what is Filipino gives much insight to the present situation of the country. The WYAAP Membership Development Committee will continue to schedule tours with Carlos Celdran throughout the year. The Philippine National Committee invites all interested members to join us as we rediscover our identity as Filipinos. Members from around the world are invited to dip into Philippine culture and history â this interesting mix of Asian, European and Latin American and American culture will make everybody feel at home.
