In Candelaria now. Left Manila last night around 8:30. It had started to rain and continued up until we passed Pampanga. It was raining in some parts of Zambales too. I didn’t get to see much of Botolan, but from what I was able to catch a glimpse of, well, let’s just say that it won’t be the same. There were entire stretches where the only light was from the bus and street lamps. The houses were all dark.
My trip was fast, surprisingly. I expected to be in Candelaria by 2:30 at the earliest, but I was home by 1:30. Most night trips tend to be much faster than day trips. Thanks to manong driver for taking me home safe.
Thursday, I was in Baguio. Ching & I went to get some documents and met up with our college professors for our recommendations. It was great to hang out with them, catching up and joking. Sitting at the Inquirer office brought back my internship days.
We went back to Manila that same day. Tiring, but fun.
Tomorrow, we will go to the cemetery. Next week, Mama & Papa will work with some of their friends for a relief drive to Botolan. They said there were many families who still need help, and none are able to reach them. I hope I could come along and see how it goes.
