Catching Up...

I took a short trip to the Windy City, Chicago.  I linked up with two amazing pinays, Natalia and Sarah, from Filipino Kitchen and attended the Kultura Festival an art and food event they helped organized.  They invited me to join them and a group of Pilipinos from around the nation as well as Toronto to see a collection of 10k artifacts from the Philippines at the Field Museum.  I had the opportunity to connect and build with some awesome Pilipinos while I was out there.  Here's some photos from the Field Museum and the Kultura Festival.
