Mona Lisa, a tribute from the memories of a granddaughter

Inquirer Breaking News - Thu, 10/10/2019 - 00:40
(First of a series) Last Aug. 25, on a Sunday morning, I was in Davao City celebrating the Kadayawan Festival with kilos of mangosteen and manic soldiering ants defending their forts on my bed for breakfast.
