Five years ago I was 24 and enjoying a work assignment (raket) in Ifugao with my college buddies. I miss the rice terraces and the little life lessons learnt while traveling with the group I was in. What life lessons are these? Enjoy what you have. Appreciate history and tradition. “There’s no point in living, if you can’t feel alive.” (okay that came from a James Bond movie, but it was a life lesson in Impact size 36 BOLD as we rode on roof of a jeepney running 50 kph down winding mountain roads). All is good. I miss you guys, y’all know who you are.
