For two (way-too-short) weeks in October, I had a chance to visit the homeland of my ancestors. The Eighth Wonder of the World left me dark, a few pounds skinner, and wishing I had bug spray.
I developed an appreciation for hot running water, paved roads, and public social services.
My journey to find hidden beauty took me through the buildings, cemeterys, food, museums, rice terraces, streets, and people of the sublime country that is the Philippines.
