Deare friends,

I spent time as an associate country direcotor in Sierra Leone and in the Office of Management in Washington, two places where the work can be pretty demanding. I decided to retire in the Philppines.

But after I started living in the Philppines, by accident I started a mailing list that now has 2,470 members, some former volunteers. It keep me so busy I don't feel retired, but I do have time to enjoy myself.

If you would like to join others interested in the Philippines on a tightly moderated "on topic" free group,please go to and join the free Yahoo Groups List, Living, Retiring, Traveling and Doing Business in the Philippines.

I am sure you will find it helpful in you adjustment here, especially if you are considering living here one day. The Culture pages on the website may give you some insight into the Philipine culture, the Cost of Living link valuable information on that throughout the country.

These are actual budgets are for expats who are employeed in jobs in the Philippines, living in the Philippines for a significant time. But most are for those of us on a more limited budget.

May the Peace Corps continue to help Filinos, the Philippines and other developing coutries thgoughout the world. And may it have the bugetary success and priority it deseves, the best bang for the buck the US Governement gets from any of its programs!

Very best always,
