Refrigerated freight...again

Wow, the Philippines is a land of extremes. We went from the extreme tranquility of Corregidor to the manic, rain-soaked insanity of Manila, to a frigid night on a bus to Banaue with the A/C so cold we're planning on wearing stocking caps and winter clothing for the night ride back to Manila tomorrow night. Banaue has been the acme of humid, and we got pretty soaked walking up to Batad to view the rice terraces there yesterday. It's beautiful and green and totally different than Antarctica, but we're dreading the couple nights back in Manila before our flight to Puerto Princessa on Palawan. Oh well, that's travel.

I'll try to get some photos posted at some point.

Well hot or cold, it's a happy Thanksgiving Day here in the States, and I do hope you're having fun. Just don't eat the balut. (But if you do, report back!)

Been watching the storms and waves on Stormsurf.com. Looks like interesting weather in your area.
