I’m sharing two childhood pictures that I recently cleaned up. The first one is the only surviving picture of me as an infant. This shows my oldest sister Vicky carrying me, my sister Ana, and my brother Jess or Junior. This photo was taken in our temporary home in Talisay, Cebu. We stayed there for a few years after World War II, while my parents built our home in Cebu City behind the Capitolio.
The second picture shows my brother Jess, sister Ana, and me at Liloan Beach in Cebu. In the background is a remant of a World War II landing craft. I was born after the war but now I realize I grew up surrounded by evidence of World War II. It took Cebu and the rest of the Philippines year to recover from that horrific war.
