Driving in Manila

Driving around Manila is an adventure. It's not at all like traffic back home.

Jeepneys are a very common means of transportation.

We got into the city around midnight and even at that time there was one point where it ground to a halt. During the day it is insane. A few days ago we got stuck mid-afternoon. I think it took us about forty-five minutes to travel about two kilometres.

I'm Writing From the Future!

I haven't written a post in a really long time. It's not that life has been boring or I haven't been making awesome food... rather I've been in a very different head space lately.

I won't be going into a lot of detail here, but basically my husband and I have moved to the Philippines to work for an NGO. My hope is to write about life out here on this blog. I've already photographed some awesome fruit that we've had!

The time difference has taken some getting used to. We are 13 hours ahead of "back home". So when I call my mom and dad it's like I'm calling from the future!

The flight over was interesting. We were in transit for a total of about 28 hour, of which we had brilliant sunlight for 22 hours. Here are a few travelling shots:
