My parents' home is known as a provincial backwater in the Philippines, but instead of a sleepy island we found one full of excitement. "Excitement" in the sense that ASEAN was meeting there and there were remnants of Abu Sayyaf running around.
Overall we had a fine time, despite some low points with the parents. Z managed the travel well enough. Really the most important result is that he now understands that his family is much wider than just his parents.
Unfortunately because of poor connectivity I wasn't able to keep up on LJ so my apologies for missing any major entries!
