This table defined my experience of visiting the Philippines. It became my bed for two days offered to me as a guest, while those working with me slept on the floor below. It was a privilege that made very clear the differences of living in a country of excess to that of one continuously struggling to support it’s own people. It provided for me a unique perspective that allowed me to see past who I am and live for a moment in another culture.
