    Hi, can anyone here tell me where in Brgy Curva is the Tero farm? I only know one person there, Sandra Tero (now in Germany), and she talked about her farm being "on the mountain", so I assume on the west side of that main road. If you can pinpoint it on an image, please send it to jimmynog@yahoo.com. Thank you!
