This blog post is about my daily ride to work - the Jeepney. The Jeepney is an iconic mode of transportation in the Philippines with a rich history. In this short post, I discuss why I am a fan of the Jeepney, its history, Jeepney art and some of its downfalls. Finally, I share some tips on how to ride a Jeepney in case one of you curious souls decides to jump on one when you visit the Philippines.

Valerie Paradiso - Blog 2: Why you should consider doing an internship in the Philippines

Post type: 
Blog post

If you are thinking about doing a CAPI internship and you are unsure where you should be based, this podcast is for you! I have now been interning in the Philippines for 2 months and decided to share five reasons why I think you should consider doing an internship in the Philippines. Keep in mind that the reasons I discuss are very subjective, being based on my past and present experiences. Nevertheless, I am hoping this may be useful for the people at home who are roaming the blogs and podcasts trying to figure out which internship would be best suited for them.
