I have never felt like a tourist in my own country until I sat foot on this island.
I was welcomed with the utmost warmth of emotions and climate.
I was treated generously. Too generous.
I thought that we, Filipinos, lost it.
I have restored my faith in humanity.
I left being a better and more forgiving person.
I will try to be as welcoming as the people in Santa Fe.
I will start by not saying ‘I’.
