It’s morning in Manila. Last night I skipped ahead to Friday, landing in the Philippines after leaving Hawaii around lunch on Wednesday and then having a brief layover in Guam.
I didn’t see much of Guam because it was via the plan windows or from the airport, but the island is beautiful, with green hills and cliff faces that fall into the ocean, and glassy bays that reflect the buildings and sand of the coastline.
We did manage to all hang onto our passports and other belongings (quite a feat in a group!) and even though I suspect we’ll all be tired pretty quickly today, it’s going to be a good one.
