Iloilo City, I tell, is one of those places I visited that made it seem like I fit in — that I’m no alien. Even when their dialect is a new to me, as I was to their streets, it did not sound difficult to comprehend it’s context. And in the few days I was there, it felt like I could call it a second home.

Maybe because the small hometown girl in me liked the urban but not so crazy streets of Iloilo. And that it did not make me feel like everyone is rushing off around me. And that however dominating the buildings were, the touch of past in them made me feel that it’s a city that valued history, and it’s past.
