My parents, Janet and Steve, arrived in Manila late on the 28th. Instead of letting them rest and adjust to the time change, we jumped on another airplane and flew to Bangkok, where we’ll spend the next few days discovering the city together. I’m so excited to introduce them to our Foreign Service life. And yes, I promise we are going to visit Manila too! I’ll do my best to get you pictures and updates, but I can’t make any promises because their schedule is even more packed than Rachel’s! Let’s give them a big Filipino welcome – it’s their first time in Asia!
