“The latest about my amazing retirement adventures.”

It has been one year this August since I sold my home in Jessup, Maryland, loaded the sea container with household goods and boarded the plane at Ronald Reagan National Airport, Washington DC with Mark to fly to Manila. It was about a 24-hour trip. I remember arriving in flooded Manila from the previous week’s monsoon rains. We just went through 6 days of rain this August. Lots of flooding again in low areas of Manila. Well, its all part of living in the Philippines.
