Torn Down

I finally made it to Cubao where my grandmother's house used to stand. Tita M said she saw the small book I gave to mom last year that included images from the Cubao series and some old photographs of the family while they lived there. "Naluha ako." she said. (I was teary eyed.).

The only structure left was the master bedroom where Iling now resides.
