Hi folks and very sleepy greetings from Manila, Philippines! I'm practically delirious right now due to the psycho jetlag that comes along with going 12 hours ahead of my usual day-to-day life, but I'm totally excited to be here. It's my first trip to anywhere Asia, so this is a whole new experience for me.
While I'm required to crawl into bed this very second, I wanted to share this first real view of Manila (via my hotel room this morning) with you! I arrived around 10pm and couldn't really see anything from the car ride over to the hotel. When I opened my curtains this morning, I was pleased to find this pretty combination of urban towers and greenery all around.
