Putlod (Rosalie's home barrio)
Putlod, Jaen
Nueva Ecija, Philippines
February 2000

the house on the left is where Rosalie grew-up; the concrete wall fence was not there the last time i was; the house on the right is Larry's (Rosalie's brother)

progress is slow in the Philippines but seems to happen; this paved street is new to me and must have been put there only in the last five years.

the "tricycle", functions like a taxi; these creations can take as much as four adult passengers to their destination

cooling off; standing: Rosalie's sister Lirosa, nephew Bodjie and brother Larry; in the pool: Qzedell and cousin

this is Bitoy (a.k.a. Bernard) and daughter

the friendly police
