Nida invited me to the Philippines. I can’t thank her enough. The house is amazing. Her family is lovely. The put three large buffet meals out every day. I am going to get fat here. Basically I am hanging out at the farm, relaxing and eating papayas and all the other fruit that grows around the house. Nida and her family took me in, and treated me like a member of the family. They made me feel comfortable and cared for. I would love to tell all of you about each one of Nida’s relatives, but I want to respect their privacy. I will tell you that they are a family of lawyers, so I wouldn't want to get into an argument with any of them - they are smart and used to arguing in court, so I think they would win. Luckily, I didn't get into an argument with any of them, because they were all amazing. Bong was such a great guy and his mom and dad deserve a medal for working so hard.
The house is huge and has more than 15 bedrooms & bathrooms and two kitchens. It is surrounded by fruit trees and other farms and chickens and goats. It was lovely and mostly quiet and I didn't strangle the rooster that crowed under my window every night at 4am.
I hope some of them come to visit me someday!
Thank you Nida for inviting me.
