Before and After

I was sorting through the pictures folder of CERA (my sister's ACER laptop) and found really old photos of the family. From way way back when I was still a toddler in India, my pre-teen years in Belgium up to my HS and college days in Pinas. It brought back fond memories and nostalgia started slowly creeping its way into my heart and soul.

A period where computers were non existent, cameras were still very chunky, no cellphones and text messaging. We would travel and then develop the pictures to store them in now rusty photo albums. It sounds like an entirely different era. I bet if you told some young person today, s/he might be flabbergasted as to how we could have survived without the Internet, without Facebook, the iPad, iPhone or whatever gadget is trendy nowadays.

Here is a 'before' picture - Circa 1980 taken at the Vatican City:

The 'after' picture - Circa 2001 also taken at the Vatican City:
