September Theme - Sister City

Cavite City, Philippines : San Diego, California

Having read the Theme for this month weeks ago, I was thrilled by it! Knowing that the Sister City of Cavite City is San Diego, CA! I was so relieved because my older brother, Nik, is living almost all his life at San Diego! So I decided to join and sign up!

One of my most visited site on the web is wikipedia and most of my views relate to Geography because it is my passion. So a topic I have learned there are about sister cities! Cities that are rlated to each other in many ways. Cavite City have two sister Cities, Tainan in Taiwan and I have been lucky that I have been to one of them, San Diego when I was still young. As I can remember, Aside from the weather, it is very closely like Cavite City with the Sea-side feel of it and the diciplined people.

I asked my brother two days ago for photos shot by him of San Diego. He is also a photo enthusiast! He doesn't just have a better camera than I do but he is very gifted in this thing. He is a very talented person and we are so proud of him! His last trip home was last Christmas and we miss him so much! Kuya, we miss you so much and I'm waiting for your next trip home! I hope you can take me there agian! Make sure you do check out other participants by clicking the links below! Here are the photos:

babooshka said...

Outstanding post. Text and images so coplimentary. This has been a theme many have struggled with, but you clearly haven't. Well done to you and you brother.

Felicia said...

Hi Steven. Your brother should start another San Diego Daily Photo. :) I saw that Cavite is a sister city to San Diego, but since I've never been to Cavite and Tijuana is so close to us it was an easy choice for me.

Steven (Cavite Daily Photo) said...

marley - yes he is! Tahnks so much! I'm sure he's thrilled with your comments! Thanks!

babooshka - Thanks so much! I prepared a bit for this theme day because I haven't had the chance to join August's. Thanks so much for your statement! It really is touching!

felicia - Wow! Thanks! I think he should consider joining too! You really did a great job on your post as well! I really loved it! Thanks so much!
