Bye, Shangri-la Mactan.

I am enjoying a last few minutes on the balcony before ceding its ownership to the next guest. We’re near enough the airport so we’re not screaming at one another to board the shuttle now now now.

This has been a relaxing break for me, regardless that we’re here for work. There’s something about staring at the slow sway of tree tops and the procession of waves to and back again from the horizon that makes meetings more palatable, and in truth just a little less urgent.

We’ll be back in Manila by lunch.
