Emily gave me this card as a reminder - that's the Mack family on the tarmac in front of the plane.
I figure it will take me 23-24 hours door-to-door to get from my house to the home of my host, in Manila. A perfect time to catch up on some sleep. Many thanks to those of you who wrote to offer travel tips and advice. I'm sure it will all come in handy.
UPDATE: Oh dear, LAX doesn't do windows well
Wasn't there something in the Windows license that says that windows should never be used in mission critical applications where human safety is at risk? This doesn't look promising. Michael's gonna love this.
