“Small Town Diaries” is a series in this blog of posts I create inspired by my home town, Lazi. Lazi is a small town in the small island of Siquijor. It is a small town but, growing up, I never felt like we were disconnected with the world. We had television, we watched American movies, we read books, we read newspapers, we even welcome national celebrities and politicians often.
Our town was a mess last Christmas because there was ongoing road repair in our national road. The road was dug deeper and it was muddy. Also, because of the ongoing war against drug, there were no annual traditional discos on Christmas and New Year’s eve. So it was very peaceful. What I did mostly was play with my nephews, work, sleep and sleep, and visit our Grandma.
