I made it to Manila safe and sound! I cut it a little close between flights since the first was delayed 20 minutes. Both airlines were really nice. I flew Thai Air from Chiang Mai to Bangkok, and there was free booze if you wanted it (I couldn't bring myself to go for it at 10 AM). From Bangkok I flew to Manila on Philippine Air, and although that flight was FREEZING, there was a surprisingly yummy in flight meal. I touched down around 6:15, went ...

... It’s such a contrast!
On the way back we climbed up the city walls and walked along them for a while. While heading back to our place both of us stopped to have our hair cut. Tez got it for PHP 150 and me for PHP 50. It was very cheap but neither of us really liked a new hairstyle.
