Philippines 2012

April 2, 2012

As you saw in the last post, I had gone to the Philip­pines on assign­ment to cap­ture the won­der­ful reunion of cousins from my grandmother’s side from my father’s side. Hav­ing gone that far across the globe to only spend sev­en days and fly back is almost unheard of. Usu­al­ly, a three week stay is touch­ing the ice­berg immers­ing your­self in the new envi­ron­ment. But soon you will also know why my trip had to be cut short.

Despite the brief stay, each day was cer­tain­ly event­ful. I was in the Philip­pines 15 years ago. That time, I had trav­elled with my par­ents and broth­er, so there was always some­one to chat with. This time around was inter­est­ing, as I expe­ri­enced being more of an observ­er, while my father (aka Trans­la­tor) enjoyed him­self con­vers­ing with his fam­i­ly. The lack of know­ing Taga­log (or my par­ents’ dialect — Kapam­pan­gan) left me to cap­ture more with my cam­era and remem­ber more about this trip, which I thor­ough­ly enjoyed.

Click the images below to jump to each of the days I had pho­togged. I hope you enjoy this jour­ney with me!
