I am leaving the U.S., with my wife Arlene, in two weeks. It will be our first trip back to her province in the Philippines since she and I left there two years ago.
It will be my own longest stay in Badoc, her town in Ilocos Norte. It's a great, green and lush rural placid place. But there are NPA (communist guerillas), and corruption. I'll be in Bacoc for two weeks.
I should come back with some good photos and video.
