One of our readers sent us a message asking if we were still alive since we haven't posted a blog in a while.  Considering the recent leg infection and hospital stay that would be a valid concern.  But no, we're not dead - just got sidetracked and stressed out and needed a break.  We've caught up on a few posts that didn't get published and we'll get back on track.

The end of June marked Jane's 2 year anniversary in Manila.  So much has
happened and there's been so many experiences both good and bad.  Let's
hope the next year doesn't bring us any experiences involving
hospitals, police stations or natural disasters.  We're going forward
with renewing our condo lease for another year so the intent is that
we'll be here at least that long.  But a lot of people working under the
same assumption have found themselves uprooted and heading home or to
their next location prematurely. It makes us wonder what's in the plan
for us and what our options will be now that we're into year 3.  That
will be a point of discussion when Jane gets to the NJ office. Not that
plans always come to fruition but its comforting to think there might be

Right now we're back in the US for a while and we've been in Florida visiting family and friends in the stretch between Port Charlotte in the south and Fort Walton Beach in the panhandle.  We've been enjoying the foods we've missed, shopping for clothes that fit and driving fast on the highways.  It's good to be back in the US.

wala lang on

it's nice to hear that you're enjoying your stay here in the Philippines (at least based on your blog entries). Whatever jane's company's plan for you would be, wish you could make use of your remaining time here to see other parts of the country. We know you're seeing a lot of contrasts and we know you're enjoying your stay.
