Philippina

IMG_3399

 

In Israel so many of the caregivers are from the Philippines that the Hebrew word for caregiver has become “philippina.”  So that it is possible (and we overheard this) to say:  “My philippina is from Turkey.”  The photo above was taken in one of the malls in Tel Aviv.  It is a group of caregivers playing card while their charges sit around them in their wheelchairs.

Globalization? Good or bad?

    Thanks for this Simon. I had to share it on facebook for my filipino friends.
