One house? Two houses? For a fiesta dinner? But everyone’s welcome and, being with the Parish Priest of Lazi, we were invited to at least three houses to eat during the fiesta celebration in Talingting, E. Villanueva, Siquijor.

Lazi is charming. Century old acacia trees, with its outspread branches, gives shade and cool on a rather humid afternoon. Old houses still abound. The people are pious and friendly. Always smiling.
