There was no more hitch from Bontoc to Lake Sebu. We got to Manila with enough time to walk to Tara’s apartment in Scout Borromeo, repack, withdraw money from Western Union, and take a cab to the airport. We got to the airport with a few minutes to spare before boarding so I also got to withdraw money from the ATM. When a Cebu Pacific attendant saw Tara’s tattoo, he said, “Fresh na fresh pa po tattoo nyo ah!” To which Tara replied, “Huh?” The flight attendant then said, “Good morning!” Haha!
The year 2012 has been truly awesome for me. Yes, it was full of dramas. And, it was also the year that I got to travel to two (2) countries and eleven (11) provinces. It was the year that I got to visit five (5) IP tribes and the year that I got to figure out what I really want.
