I'm going away to the Philippines for 3 weeks in March. I have never gone, so I'm really looking forward to it. My mom is coming also, and my aunt and grandmother. She's acting blaze about it, and it's kind of annoying since I feel so differently I guess. I can't believe I'm going to be in Asia! I'm going to meet family, see the house my grandfather built, see where my mom and aunts and uncles grew up. I'm going to be filming, taking pictures like crazy and just trying to soak everything in. I hope to see some tourist spots like the Chocolate Hills and the Rice fields. I bet it's going to be so lush, green and tropical. It really stinks that my cousin Saskia can't make it, but I'm going to get to bond with my two cousins who live there. I'll try to blog when I'm over there, I'm sure I'll have lots of cool National Geographic-like pictures to share.
