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.
