If you're looking for something to read today, I'd like to suggest this New York Times article. It was the cover story from last week's Sunday magazine, so I apologize for not giving you earlier notice.
The history of Filipino people traveling overseas - whether it be to the United States or Saudi Arabia or anywhere else, really - is one I find fascinating. I have family members that have lived this way for years, working sometimes thousands of miles away from home in order to support their families back home, and I often wonder just how they do it. I hope you find this story as interesting as I do.
