I know many Filipinos/Filipinas and they have told me stories of these duende.
* While cutting brush on a hiking trail, one Filipino I know trampled what looked like ant mounds. Later he got extremely sick and was hospitalized.
Doctors didn't know what was going on. He was later cured after finally visiting a witch doctor.
* Another friend told me the duende hypnotized her when she in school. Her best friend can corroborate and describes this event as the time she was
seen staring at a big tree in the school yard. I think she said she was having personal issues at home at that time.
* A few others have described the same things mentioned here, the sounds of breaking glass coming from the kitchen, doors opening and hearing noises
like tiny footsteps up on the roof and scrathcing and whispers.
I'll try to get more stories from them tomorrow.
I myself find it extremely difficult to believe this stuff, but why have many others described very similar stories?
Are they in tune with these little guys?
What's the relation with the Irish Leprechaun?
..is there a connection?
Can the same be said about the grays?
