Summer was nearly finished then, so it is not the busiest time in the island.
It was a vacation and reunion with my Mom to visit our relatives.
It was amazing to explore and observe how they adapted completely to the life in their chosen home country.
This trip was not about the place itself. It was mostly about being immersed to the leisure and work life of our cousins, whom we’ve only spent short vacations with in the Philippines.
It was getting to know them in this different environment where they consider home for more than a decade.
