It is been a while since I've seen my loved ones in the Philippines. And seeing our pictures together lessen the feelings of deprivation.
Last year I visited my family in my homecountry and one of the highlights was to see Villa Escudero.
The entrance. They are going to put stamp on our hands!
My daughter-in-law, my son and my mother on the way to the entrance.
My granchildren found a friend. But he won't play with them.
By the way I have 6 grandchildren and the youngest is Aerith. She is one year old now.
Picture taking again!
My son-in-law with his son and my daughter with her daughter.
Wow, there is an airplane here too. The owner of Villa Escuedero must have been a very rich man.
I wonder if the owner of these place was afraid of war. Oh my, he was prepared for an attack as I can see!
Well, time to explore the rest of the place. And here are the carriage.
We are at the entrance. The carabao is going to transport us to the heart of Villa Escuedero . No need for gas, but poor animal.
I remember when I was a child, I have seen the carabaos plowing the fields before rice planting, but they changed their career. Now, they are use to pull the carriage. I suppose they can't complain. Tragic fate?
Anyway, before I can make you cry, let us continue the journey.
As you can see at the picture, everybody were so curious to see how this place looks like. I wonder what they are thinking? Everybody were speechless.
Well the trip with the carriage was very enjoyable because this lady and the guitar man sung songs for us. Filipino songs that pulled me way back when I was young...mmm younger than I am now. They were really good. I wish I could sing well too. But, no camplaining, I like to hear others sing for me. I feel like a millionair for a little while.
Wow E.T is here too waving to us passerby! Maybe he is on vacation too.
What happen to the animals? Transformed to be a stone? Maybe Medusa was here on vacation too?
Remember Medusa? If you look into her eyes, you will be change into a stone.
Now it's coconut harvest season, but the people turned out to be stones too. Must keep an eye on Medusa. Don't want to be here forever as a sculpture of stone.
But guess what? Some are just enjoying the heat of the sun:) Well there is always a difference between people.
At last we are now in the heart of Villa Escuedero and we are starving. So two of my granchildren tried fishing. But the fish won't bite. But I believe there is food somewhere else here.....
Well, me and my first daughter decided to explore the river. Believed me no one of us can paddle and we didn't reach half of the journey:)
But my second daughter and her hubby did a better job. Hi hi
Anyway this place was perfect for soul. body and spirit. Feels like home....
I might be boring you now. This post is longer than I thought it would be. So, this will be the part one. I will be posting the next part in my next post because I still have a lot of fun things to share. Hope you will be there too .
