This is based on a book by my GGGrandfather Edwin Rainbow. He was a journalist, author and Registrar of Birth and Deaths in Coventry, UK at the turn of the last century. He wrote this book in 1916 as a turn by turn description of several walks through his (and my) home city. It's like a time capsule as he describes elegant tree-lined avenues, the tram system and industries of the time. Most of the city was destroyed in WWII and it's fascinating to read what's still there and what's long forgotten.
The places on the map are where I lived and specifically where I spent the bulk of my time. I was truly a small town girl, even though I was living 14,000 miles away from Texas. Naga is my home. The Filipino people are my family. I never forget them. This was a great way to remember my roots.
