"I have a job to do"

Our 72-year old tour guide on our catamaran to Corregidor asked God what to do with the rest of his life, and he realized that he had lived in the time of US occupation and WWII. He said, "I have a job to do," to tell people about his nation and it's connection to WWII.

"We speak American," he said in light of US colonization in 1898 after 300 years of Spaniish control. They didn't gain their independence until after WWII.

He said the Spanish legacy is religion. They are the only Catholic nation in Asia. He said the US legacy is language...and Coka-Cola.
