Journey back home

Someone sent me the link to this video and I got so emotional listening to the song, and viewing the sights of Manila and its surrounding cities. These places were my old stumping ground and they will always have a soft spot in my heart. There were a lot of fond memories, and some sad ones, that I've spent there. Although, I've been away for a long time, and the landscape has changed a lot, I still feel a lump in my throat every time I see a picture of the old country.

Perhaps others who spent some time back home feel the same way as I do. The video here was put together by lancerpntgrd; and he had given me permission to post it. The music is by the band Journey who had a concert back there in March with our very own Arnel Pineda.



I'm so homesick...
