2. I'm in Iloilo Province

My wife's family owns a 25-acre residential and rice/poultry farm. My situation is way different. My 4 grandparents hailed from Southern Italy, so my skin acclimates to the sun nicely. I love a tropical climate and I put in a built-in pool. My house is air conditioned, and I have a new, small pickup truck. My nephew is my driver. I have a driver's license here, but I never drive. I receive far more money each month than I spend. I would need 10 times my income to live in the US the way I live here.

I'm not saying this is for everyone. But it is perfect for me.
