Over a year after the devastating Typhoon Yolanda or Typhoon Haiyan ravaged through my hometown, Tacloban City, I got the chance to go back, not once but twice in July. Here’s a little photo tour from those 2 trips.
To be honest, when I got off the plane on the first trip, I wasn’t sure what to expect. From the airport, I could already see telltale signs of change from the aftermath but it seems like things are back to normal, people going on with their lives.
Throughout the first week of running errands, going back and forth downtown Tacloban, I continually look everywhere. Part of the landscape looks like the way I remember it from the last visit, yet there still are some places that has yet to be rebuilt. Still, I cannot help but feel quite proud that the city has managed to rise up again, people have rebuilt their lives and things seem to be back to “normal”.
Thanks for looking.
