The first time I visited the Philippines, I was 12 years old — a pretentious, insufferable seventh grader leaving the country for the very first time. Despite having the incredible and rare fortune of traveling to my ancestral home — the country where my parents were raised and where most of my family resides — I didn’t like it much.
