I want to discuss my meeting with two remarkable 80-something men, members of the Philippines’ own “greatest generation”: Washington SyCip and Bienvenido Tan. The two of them encapsulate modern Philippine history. Plus, they've got some great stories.
Let’s start with Mr. SyCip. Anyone visiting the Philippines is told to go see Wash. Go see Wash. In my case, it was Michael Chen who told us to go see Wash. So we went to go see Wash.
