Getting ready for the Philippines

On the Island of Palawan, where we will be spending most of our time.

Our family will soon be flying out for a two week vacation to the Philippines. We are flying non-stop from Atlanta to Tokyo, then from Tokyo to Manila, and then from Manila to the Island of Palawan, where Daphne’s grandmother lives. Daphne was born in the Philippines and moved to the United States when she was five. This trip will be the first time back for her since she was 10. As for myself, I have never been overseas like this before. The most exotic place I’ve ever been was Toronto a few months ago. I am really looking forward to the trip. It should prove to be quite the adventure.

Now Andy...

Calling Toronto exotic is just wrong.

Calling it the center of evil in the universe will prove you have begun to understand the Canadian psyche.

So, you're saying that visiting the center of all evil was not that much of a warm up to going to Southeast Asia?

Yeah... I think so.

Those of us in the West never miss a chance to trash Trawna...
