Shipmate Glindell Van Winkle and I were invited to a Philippine home. The food was wonderful.
I did not know bananas could be prepared in so many different ways--mmmmmmmmmm.
I took all the pictures that follow. It was Christmas Day 25 December 1953.
How I wish now, that I would have recorded the names of our hosts then.
