The Philippine Bus and Miss Universe

@Sarah Starrett:

[Dirty, lack of education, incompetent police, disease, corruption, drugs, pollution... and you're proud of your nasty beaches and trash filled mountains without trees? ]

You do realise that many of your points could also be used to describe the country of America? Hollywood waxes elquent regarding the virtues of the American police, yet the various American police reality shows and watching the news, gives the impression of trigger happy police officers.

From across the pond, America does not look too welcoming.

As for nasty beaches, I am not sure which part you visited, although I can point to the fact that the Philippines has some world class diving locations.

Perhaps you are talking about Manila, but those I have met tell me that the city offers some of the best cuisines in the world.

As for education. Thousands of Filipino Doctors and Nurses are employed in the American hospitals. British NHS and the Middle-east. They've even started turning up in Iceland and the rest of European Union.

You are American, but I would not regard you as a prime example.
