New York Gathering
Foreword: Living not only halfway across the globe but also southern vs. northern hemispheres, sisters Cecille and Millete can't easily get together. During the Martin L. King Day weekend, they did so in New York City. And I was lucky enough to join them. Here are the pictorial results.
The objects of our affections, Cecille Orosa Drier and Milette Orosa Uy,
daughters of the late Jose Y. Orosa, aka Tio Pepe.
