4 back from the Philippines pt.1

Kamusta ka?
(How are you?)
Ahhh... back home... it feels good.
We got home late Wednesday night and we're still jet lagged. Slowly gettin' back to the groove of things. I've got a gazillion pics to sort through and share, so rather than bombarding you with oodles of pictures at once, I'm going to break it up in parts.
So here's the first set... enjoy!

LAX to Manila International Airport
This is the oldest Catholic church in my dad's hometown, Miagao (me-yag-ow).

My aunt's vacation home in Lanotan (lah-noo-tahn).

After our visit to the oldest Catholic church in my dad's hometown, we went to my aunt's vacation home. The beach is literally steps from her home.

With clear warm water and black sand, the girls cooled off with a brief dip... and I mean BRIEF. Sophie saw a jellyfish float by her and swim time was quickly over.
What a bummer!

After a few days of rest in the city of IloIlo (ee-loo-ee-loo), it was time to hop on the "RORO" (Ride-on, Ride-off) ferry and head to my parents' farm in Guimaras.

We packed up the truck, rode on the ferry and it was about a 30 minute boat ride across the channel.

Okay, so I'll stop here for now.
Next stop... Guimaras (Gi-mah-rahs)!!!
