I wanted to blog regularly while on vacation but (vacation) fun gets in the way sometimes. :) So I am going to try to post some late entries. This one is 14 days overdue!
August 4, 2009 – The island of Cebu.
A few cousins were there to meet us. Good thing because I would not want to brave the streets of Cebu City and their daredevils called cab drives. We checked in at the local Marriott.
Upon arrival we went to dinner at a restaurant that featured Filipino food - Café Laguna. After a long flight it was great to see family and have my feet planted on Tierra firma and enjoy authentic Filipino food.
First full day in the island of Cebu… Visiting my 88 year-old Mom was the main agenda for this trip. Tracey and I went to see her on the first day. It is wonderful to see her healthy and looking happy. She seemed happy to see us too. She even asked about her other grandchildren, Shawn and Mike. She recognized Tracey. She is looking wonderful and she seems very content here.
After a visit with Mom, we played tourists seeing some of the city sights before calling it a day, well part of a day. (I am going to do separate journal entries of some of these places.)
A farmers’ market.
A newly-wed leaving the Cebu City Cathedral allowed me to take their picture. I told them to look for their photo on Facebook. Now, if only I can find that pic.... :)
Cebu – I do not always think of Cebu in my daily life in California. Yet, every time that I am here, thoughts of taking up residence cross my mind. Life is simpler, so much to see and do…. Lots of people I love......but then lots of people I love in California too ...... I could live here…maybe become a parttime residence, yeah!
