I Am Filipino – Again!
Yesterday, we got one step closer to our dream of escape. I officially became a citizen of the Philippines. Now not only can I stay indefinitely in my country of birth but I can also vote, buy land, engage in business and even run for public office! This also clears the way for my husband, “the Chef” to get a non-quota immigrant visa. It’s going to be awhile before we make the final leap half way around the world but this makes it feel real.
We are so ready to trade in our Honda for a bangka,
our house for a nipa hut,
and the cold and snow for sun and sand. The dream for a simple life lives on!
