il Carnevale di Venezia

carnevale is pretty huge here in italy and i was lucky enough to go to venice to experience it first hand. filippo bought us tickets to go for v-day weekend. as touristy as venice is, it really is a beautiful place.

chocolate festival

stumbled upon this gem in santa croce last february. soooo delicious...







new apartment

i realize it's been almost a month and a half since my last blog. sorry.
since coming back to florence, i've moved into a new apartment. i found a job nannying for two wonderful boys and my apartment is attached to the house in the center of florence. i must say, it's been a nice set up...




march

i can't believe it's march already... sorry i haven't been blogging...
will start again... i promise.

cavite

it's been a long time. realized this post was in draft mode. anyway.. going back to christmas... dad's birthday is christmas, and this was the first christmas he had gone back to spend with his family. this is the first time i met my dad's side of the family. needless to say it was a pretty incredible experience. there are more pictures.. i'll and them later.




manila

unfortunately i don't have many pictures from manila. this was just the view out of our hotel window. manila is dirty to say the least. and most of your time is spent inside shopping malls (the biggest i've ever seen) and in taxis. it's a city. high rises, traffic. i was surprised.



tarlac

backstory. my mom's dad is from tarlac. it's about an 3 hours drive from manila. in the country. my dad bought a house and my grandfather helped construct it. keep in mind, grandpa is 80 and is driving us around in the craziest traffic ever. his family was one of the major families in tarlac. we drove out to the house for a day and saw his property and the rice fields... i could live here.
