And I got to travel and experience wonders of the Philippines, from Subic Bay on the western coast...
with breakfast by the bay,
and fruit bats in one protected area;
then across the central plain and up twisting roads to mountain-top Baguio,
where I was the first-ever international author to visit,
and students were very excited by autographing.
Baguio had some of the most amazing jeepneys I saw.
Then back down the mountain and across the plain, driving through Manila and to the southern suburbs...
Another hotel breakfast with a very different view!
