Walked the Slippery, Muddy Road

Yesterday was fun although it was Friday the 13th! We had fun walking so carefully not to slip and fall on the mud and puddles along that dirt road leading to the small chapel where a baptism was held. She was the baby of our masseuse/therapist, and my nephew-in-law was one of the godparents/sponsors. So my husband, my sister, my nephew-in-law and his nine years old daughter went to grace the occasion. There was a simple lunch served us at the house of our masseuse friend. It was also their barangay fiesta, the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima. It was indeed fun experiencing that same thing, walking on mud or dirt road, which we did when we were children as we trek our way going to the river to bathe and wash clothes. So good to reminisce the days!

There's mud, because it was just a dirt road; not concrete, but just plain soil. They could not construct a concrete road because the area is still part of a large sugarcane plantation and I think the owner of that hacienda had not granted land ownership to those people who settled on the outskirts of that land.
