I've arrived - I'm dead tired after a 26-hour trip down here including all the layovers. The longest leg of the trip (LA to Manila) was at night, but I didn't get to sleep much. When we did land in Manila, the entire plane shouted and cheered. I turned to the other eBay employee with me and said, "Are they cheering because it was a successful landing or they are glad to be home?" I think it was the latter. The plane was decent and was a 747, so there were a ton of people in the plane.

Right now I am listening to the BYU game on podcast. I just started the second quarter and I am all right with they way they have played.

Here are some pictures of the trip down and my hotel:

Here is downtown Manila. I am actually in the city of Cebu though.

Here are the views out the window of my hotel.

It's a good thing crab and ham go well together.

Glad you got there in one piece, bro.

Haha, Kirk Ham. That is great. Dang, it looks nice there. I hear the water is just awesome!! I got an offer to go out there... yeah, about time right? Well, I would get out there the day you come back. So, I'm going to politely decline and enjoy some BYU FOOTBALL!!!

Your new middle name made me laugh out loud! I love it!

The area looks so pretty and green.
