OUR SKIN DIARY: We Are also Invincible

Hello, I just read your article about your responses to being dark-skinned etc. My wife was born with dark skin as she is a Filipina Jamaican, born and educated in manila. Forty years ago, she migrated to Australia and worked there till we retired two years ago. Iam an Australian. We live in Manila permanently. We travel constantly throughout Philippines and Asia. Very few places we haven’t been. Can you imagine the comments she/we get? We are both sixty-eight years of age. We’re also invincible.

 

Regards,

John and Julie
