Virginia Is For Lovers

Another weekend has passed, so you already know what that means - another state has been Raft3rized!

Yes, Raft3rize is a new term I coined. Hopefully, it will catch on.

We went to visit Virginia and stayed at a friend's relative. They were the nicest folks ever. That's the thing about Filipinos. Even if they meet you for the first time, they will treat you like family.

This is my second time in Virginia. I always liked it. Nice and quiet.

There are a lot of romantic places here. Assateaque Island is one. Hence the state slogan: Virginia is for lovers.

Although in this trip, Raft3r didn't get to see much of its attractions. We just went to the mall and that was it. Still it was perfect. Raft3r's a huge mallrat.

The family I stayed with prepared home cooked meals for us. But they served us kare-kare, longganisa, and salted egg with tomatoes. Yummy! Raft3r ate a bowl full of rice.

It's crazy how much one craves for local food when overseas. I miss my sisig.

Anyone back home who sends me one will get an In-N-Out Burger in return.
