March 7, 2024 – The layover in Manilla

Our adventure is starting. We have a twelve hour lay over in Manilla on the way to Bali. We are in the lounge reading. We have had a few snacks while waiting.

No one said life or travel was going to easy or perfect.

We have brought along several books to read, as usual.

I have found a new drink.

It’s called Pandan lemon grass drink.

It took me a while to figure out what it tastes like but I finally did. After much thought, considerations and samples I think I have figured it out.

It tastes like buttered popcorn.

Part of the fun of traveling is tasting new things along the way.

I will put up more of “The Bad Seed” later today.
