Typhoon Haiyan & Tacloban City

TravelgenevieveComment

When I was traveling in Asia earlier this year, I visited Tacloban City with my aunt and her law firm for their annual company outing. I'd never been to the Visayas, and really knew nothing about the area except that it was where General MacArthur first landed in the Philippines.

We spent 3 days exploring the city, its rich history and natural beauty. Now, when I see photos of the Typhoon's aftermath, it's very saddening and surreal knowing firsthand what it used to be, and that people are struggling and suffering so much.
