This old Spanish colonial house has been with my dad’s side of the family since the 16th Century, in Majayjay, a small provincial town on the slopes of Mount Banahaw, about 50 miles south of Manila. The whole clan goes there once a year to eat lanzones, but we were visiting the place just after Christmas 2003 to inspect the property for future restoration. More photos here.

Well, I’ve finished uploading, sorting, and dating my photos for 2002 and 2003. It’s hard, tedious work that keeps me up late, so I’m taking a break before I upload the rest of my pre-Flickr life. For now, I’m back to posting current photos for a week or so. Browse the photosets for old stuff if you wish.

(Aside: Those of you who visit my weblog infrequently enough that you don’t catch certain entries before they slide off the front page, I would not have you miss this poetry-enhanced retrospective: Oh Baltimore!)
