But I had a whole lot of fun, both in the markets and at the conference I was attending for work.
First, I got to play with Monopoly money the whole week.
Using currency that is in denominations so much larger than what you are used to is so crazy!
On the way to the conference I went to Starbucks every morning.
|The Filipino people are so friendly.|
The International School of Manila is located in a very nice suburb of the main downtown area.
It's a completely different world.
|It's like a California suburb.|
There was even a Krispy Kreme in this Manila suburb.
And a Cold Stone Creamery.
It was a week of gluttony.
I did actually go to the conference.
The campus is amazing.
Manila = not a hardship post. (in case anyone tells you otherwise!!)
I played with conductive ink to make a circuit. (So cool!)
And watched this kid try to teach us about Minecraft.
Rather unsuccessful if I do say so myself.
Anyone want to teach me this? Ask your kids! Where's my former student Nick Flint when I need him?
I also got to spend some time with one of the women I admire in education.

This week was only made better by some pretty delicious food!!
A legit bowl of ramen? I need serious chopstick tutorials. STAT.
Crispy spring rolls. Yes please!
Tips on learning how to use chopsticks? or Minecraft? I'm desperate!
I'd love to hear about your favorite Southeast Asian cities...I'm trip planning!
