A Hometown Visit

I left my hometown in 1988 and my mother followed me a year after to settle with my father who’s working in Manila that time. Had finished my studies, worked, married and settled in Cavite – another province nearby Manila. 
When my father retired he insisted that he will live here to live independently since my mother passed away in 2000. He had built his own small house in his small lot in a barrio where he had grew up.  I never had a chance to visit this place as I have been already working in the Middle East. Requesting my father to come to our place every time I spent my annual vacation.
Eleven years after, I got an opportunity to be back here…

Unfortunately, I had a very limited time which hindered me from going and seeing other places but nevertheless my purpose of coming back is to visit my father and photos will only be coincidental.

The water from this well is still being used up to now but mostly for washing and cleaning.
