Edwin Toth’s Rambling Adventures in Retirement and BEFORE!

IMG_0185-180

“The latest about Edwin’s amazing retirement adventures.”

July 2014:

August 2013: 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, it’s all part of living in the Philippines.
