Default American Get-Together in Ilocos Sur

My wife (raised in Ilocos Sur) and I will be gradually transitioning to living 6 months in the U.S. and six months in the Philippines. We will be living midway between Vigan and Laoag. We will be in the Philippines for a month or so either October 2019 or February 2020. Are there any American expats that get together for coffee etc in either Laoag or Vigan?

Why limit yourself to other Americans?

You can stay back home to do that.

Seems that way. At our semi-monthly get together here in Iloilo we are all regarded as Kano even though there are Aussie, German, US, UK, Canadian, Swiss, Dutch, and anything else hat shows up.

When I posted, I was a bit parochial. Your reply reminds me that my focus was limited. Thank you!

Good point! Maybe I need to get off my hindquarters and get something organized around my wife's hometown when we go back.

Probably because if we don't speak the local dialect or Tagalog, we end up using English.
