I was talking to a lady who presently teaches in China, but is from the Philippines. This is a good lady from what I have come to know, however, when I was talking to her on a recent conversation, she warned me that the Philippines really is a dangerous place. Now, I'm going to be moving to the Philippines in September, and maybe as soon as August if I'm fortunate, but anyway, her comment took me by surprise. So, even some Filipinos worry about safety in their own country. So, I thought I would ask any of you what, if any, are your bad experiences, and what are the dangers you have personally experienced, not heard about, but actually experienced since living in country? I honestly appreciate anyone who will respond with their thoughts and experiences.
