Below 2 months ago I finally had the chance to visit my parents hometown, Gorontalo and went to my father place, Lemito again after 14 years.
Lemito is a rural area in Gorontalo, and my mother came from the city Gorontalo itself.
They went to Jakarta right after their marriage.
Went to Gorontalo was a very pleasing experience and rather important for me.
Simply because I never had the chance of living with a big family, and I even don’t know who my family was, what they do, where they are, etc.
Knowing your origin are really important, as for me it helps me to be more grateful with my life.
Do you have any stories with your family that was rather important for you that shapes you to be the person as you are now? I’d like to know!
This photo was taken in Torosiaje, an ocean village in Pohuwato, Gorontalo.
It takes around 30-40 minutes to get there by car from Lemito.
