Jamie arrives tomorrow! We are so looking forward to seeing her and hearing how her time in Palawan was. I'm also planning to enjoy the coffee shop together, go shopping, and rope her into helping me teach school (I doubt that will be a hard job!).
Whenever you'd like you can order a soft drink and have it in a bag. Yes, a small plastic bag with a straw! It saves people walking off with bottles... anyway, that was just a small interesting cultural note:).
Elections are coming up here in just over a week. This has become a noisy town with constant campaigning via loudspeakers mounted on vehicles. It's not always the most peaceful time here, but we are praying that this election would be uneventful.
There was something else important I was going to post about today, but it's slipped my mind. That seems to happen a lot lately! At any rate, that having escaped me, here is a short list of things I love about living here: fresh coconut milk, great co-workers, having a cool basement in which to do school, my red wall in the living room, ordering meat to be packaged exactly how I want it (especially skinned, deboned chicken breasts for cheaper than buying the whole chicken!), the compound where we live, green trees and sunshine, and the constant flex in a flight program!
