The long flight to Manila.

Avner, Kate, and Tintin somewhere over the Pacific....
We left on May 17th for a two week trip to the Philippines.
Avner's market manager Anthony connected him with Tintin's
sister in the Philippines who was getting married.

Kate and Tintin still excited after 14 hours of travel time.


We meet cousin Fran and brother Chris on our six hour layover in
Manila that became a whirlwind tour. In just four hours we managed
to taste the lemonade of the Philippines, calamansi juice, dinuguan,
or blood and intestine soup, ox tongue, and cheese ice cream.
You may not believe me after reading the above, but the
food in the Philippines is amazing. My favorite things were
garlic rice, blue marlin and swordfish, lechon, or spit roasted
whole pig, spicy garlic shrimp, and warm coconut pie.

Avner in the Intramuros, the Old City.

Pretty Spanish architecture.

One more flight and then finally we reach our
destination of Iloilo on Panay Island.
