My country, The Philippines, has 7,107 beautiful islands, every one of which is worth exploring. I've traveled to far away places but always came back to this place about 84.5 million Filipinos (2002) call home.

I will never forget my spanish professor in college whose greatest joy was watching us squirm if we came to class late because she would ask us to sing the Philippine National Anthem in spanish in front of the whole class. I did it once and was never again late.
Tierra adorada, hija del sol de Oriente
su fuego ardiente en ti latiendo esta
Tierra de amores, del heroismo cuna,
los invasores no te hollaran jamas
En tus azul cielo, en tus auras,
en tus montes y en tu mar, esplende y late el poema
de tu amada libertad.
Tu pabellion que en las lides
la victoria ilumino, no veranunca apagados
sus estrellas ni su sol.
Tierra de dichas, de sol y amores,
en tu regazo dulce es vivir;
es una gloria para tus hijos
cuando te ofenden, por ti morir.
