I am from the Philippines, from an Island that faces the Pacific Ocean – Eastern Samar.

Part of our tradition and written history attest of the arrival people from the Pacific. My village called Carolina, holds a tradition that a Princess arrived around 1628 and helped the locals during an epidemic.

Whether or not there is a connection between the image sent in 2013 and the ones sent in 2023, I’ll leave it to the experts to decide.
