Dan Barklind, (Grants Pass, OR), "An American perspective on Philippine life."

Dan is owner of Horizon Village Retirement Center in Grants Pass. At the beginning of the interview, he talked about human migration in the United States - specifically, seniors tend to migrate at retirement, usually to a place near the ocean, or a place where the fishing is good. Southern Oregon is ideal, being rural, inexpensive and with rivers and the ocean nearby.

Dan also talked about a recent trip to the Philippines (selling solar panels), where a typhoon had dumped 126 inches of rain in 72 hours. Many people were displaced as a result.

In the Philippines, wells tend to be shallow and easily contaminated and after a disaster, typhoid and cholera are rampant.
