Emigres

And so, The Diaspora took place…

Like shipwrecked survivors, many affluent Filipinos seeking Freedom — Plain Freedom — from the Martial Law of the Marcos Administration found themselves along the cool and windy shores of San Francisco, California, in the United States of America… in the posh enclaves of Pacific Heights, Presidio Heights, and Nob Hill. 

Some even found themselves in more distant places of the wide world than they had ever imagined.
