AWESOME FRIKKIN BEACH! Karen took me to the most beautiful spot I’ve been in the PI! Took Stanley for his first swim in the ocean, first swim in a river, first road trip. Seriously it REALLY helps me deal with the frustration of being an expat living over here when I can get the HELL out of Metro Manila once in a while. Things are SO much more beautiful and peaceful out in the provinces! Makes me wonder why anyone would want to live in Metro. Oh, yeah, jobs, internet, shopping, clubs. Heh.
