On the way back from the airport, we stopped at a shopping center where there is a grocery store to pick up a few things. It wasn’t long before I began to see people I knew. A schoolmate of Emily’s from the International School, the Filipino grocery store manager who was Emily’s friend and a link to her Filipino heritage.
There were other friends, too. And I ‘happened’ to bump into 3 committee members of the Festival of Pacific Arts.
It’s good to see these friends again and I look forward to meeting many more.
