Map of Provinces of Philippines

Map of Provinces of Philippines
Here are three enlarged maps of the 80 provinces in the Philippines. When you are talking with either a Filipino person or an Expat living here, I often ask the normal question,
“Where are you from?”

The person will consistently tell me the Province here in the Philippines, and the Expats are random, I then proceed to ask,
“Is this North, South, East or West of here?”

Normally, I do not get an answer, so I stop and try to get somebody close, or willing, to write it down. I return to my room, access the internet and search for this page: Provinces of the Philippines

Funny Story

I was in on the Island of Barbados in the Caribbean when a man asked me,
“Where are you from?”

I said, as is my custom.
“United States of America.”

He said,
“You are the first person in five years of living in the Caribbean that told me the country. Normally the person says their State.”

I said,
“Yes, Americans assume for some strange reason the whole world knows all the States and Cities in the USA.”

When people ask me where I live, I have to modulate my answer. Sometimes it is the USA, sometimes America, sometimes States; sometimes it is Ameriquee in Islamic Countries and so on and so forth.

I always know how much empathy a person has by their answer to the question, where are you from?

I tried to make the words on the Map big enough to read, I am sorry I they are not clear, I was not able to make better with my knowledge of graphics.
