Already since a few weeks, Alex is back in the Philippines.
After being one year in Europe and being for over 5 months in different hospitals, he decided to return to the only place where he know some people and where he likes the weather, palm and banana threes.
Not being back healthy and being over thin (38 kilo weight), Alex is trying to enjoy the little things in life. Mostly laying in bed whole days, since he isn't strong enough thanks to the bad health, to sit straight up during the whole day.
