Two Degrees of Separation -Dinner With Cebu Friends

 I have known some of the people in the picture all my life. We are all "children of Cebu" and what that means is that we know not only one another, but one another's families. What would be "six degrees of separation" for other cultures would only be two degrees of separation in Cebu.
 Everyone is related to everyone else; you just have to go through your genealogies to find the connections.

So it is that every time I visit Cebu, I must sit and sup with friends and relatives, because we are all interwoven as one.

Here's a picture taken at a dinner with old friends.
