When I and Chino arrived at the Ambon Airport we found difficulty looking for the Welcoming Party (WP).


The WP decided not to put name notices thinking that they would be able to ascertain our identities through our names on the belief that Chino Febre could be an Italian or a Latino and Dominador could be a Spaniard thus possessing tall height, aquiline noses, white complexion and other Caucasian features.


They were surprised  to find out that we were not possessed of the desired identity.


Ambon in Filipino means  “drizzle”. We came to know also about the existence of the Bereengid Invische Compagnie –  a Dutch company which controlled the business in the area during the 16th century.
