Waiting for the school bus on a rainy day like this

It's been raining all day here in the big apple. It doesn't rain that much in New York City, so this is quite a refreshing treat. Reminds me of those rainy afternoons coming home from school, not wanting to do your home work cos you wanted to watch your favorite cartoons. Speaking of favorite cartoons, I hope you guys checked out that long lost animated gem King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table in this week's Cartoon TV Rama. Featuring that cartoon show brought back wonderful memories that I decided to write "Playing King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table", which I'm glad a lot of you enjoyed reading.

I was talking to my friend the other day, about how it was so much fun being a kid back in the day. Back then all you needed was your imagination! Do you remember the fun times you had with your playmates? What kind of make believe games did you play? I want to hear from you guys! Send me emails of little stories and anecdotes about your memories of playtime as a kid, and we'll feature it here at Nostalgia Manila. It's always fun to read about how other people used to play, the little treasures they kept, and relive that sense of wonder and pure innocence.

Our good friend Kuya Geezer sent me some amazing photos of La Salle Greenhills taken in the 70's! Wow, you should check them out, they really send you back in time. Which is why we both decided to come up with a new feature called Nostalgia Eskwela! I'm encouraging everyone to try and dig up photos of your old school and send them over so we can feature them.

So here I am looking out the window, staring at the gray skies above, looking at the people down below walking with their umbrellas over their heads. Though I'm physically here in this big city, my mind slowly drifts elsewhere. The smell of the rain has taken be back to when I was in 1st grade, sitting in the waiting shed, patiently waiting for my school bus to pick me up and take me home, where the promise of watching my favorite cartoons and meryenda awaits.
