Do they still speak Spanish in the Phillipines?

I don't think so. My cousin had a neighbor whose mother was from the Philippines and she spoke Spanish, but none of the Filipinos I've met since then did. The main language, Tagalog, has a lot of borrowed words from Spanish and sometimes I can pick them out. But that doesn't make for understanding.

Peru and tour Machu Picchu.

Good idea but been and done just four years ago. Maybe I'll have a beer and eat Spanish peanuts.
