“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place, you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently too…….. Terry Pratchett
There are many shades to any town, some dark, and foreboding, other shades on the fringe, while the rest, which most people see, are light and bright. The lighter side of any town are its people and this is no truer than in Melaque. Similar to our hometown, it is, among other reasons, mainly the people that keep us returning year after year.
