It’s Summer! (in the Philippines)

The Philippines basically has two seasons: wet and dry. From May to October is the wet season and November to April is the dry season, but we still get rain even during the dry season. We don’t have spring, summer, autumn, or winter, but we do call April and May summer because these two months are the hottest in a year.

During this time, most schools are on “summer break” so students get a two-month break and they spend most of that time having fun because there is no such thing as “summer homework” in the Philippines.Some families take a vacation in cooler cities like Baguio and Tagaytay and some go to the beach.

People who can’t go on a trip go to shopping malls, which are a lot in the Philippines. Manila alone has at least one hundred malls. I guess there are many malls in Manila because its hot and polluted so people don’t like to stay
