I feel like I barely got to see anything other that hotel rooms, conference rooms and traffic… The people were warm & friendly but I am ashamed to admit that I know little more about the culture now than I did when I arrived. I feel so “Accidental Tourist”….
Here are the highlights of what I learned: the Philippines has Koala bears, — who knew!– grows/makes its own chocolate –yum! — and they feature Spam in many many recipes, including fine dining restaurants. (If I wasn’t afraid of copyright infringement, I’d play “Spamalot” song in this post…)
So goodbye, Manila. I hope to see you again!
