Top Ten....Number 9

Other Ex-Pats

We will make Number 9 on our countdown a collective "Thank You!" to all the other foreign workers (civil and military) and their families that we've met here. Kendra and I are both very appreciative for all your friendships, personal assistance, generosity and hospitality. We would have never made it this long this far from home without the company of so many fine and fun people to hang out with, explore with, vent to and learn from. This includes:

Elizabeth: Shared a belly-dancing stage with Kendra the first night we met, introduced us to the ABP girls and was a great friend to both of us. See you soon in D.C!

Justin: The coolest Marine you could ever meet. Showed us around the Embassy, took us to Hobbit House, played with the girls, went bowling, rode a bull, and shared the Marine's beer stash with me. Stay Safe!

Chris and Colleen: For introducing us to the Women's Bazaar, touring Binondo and Quiapo, and for all the great tips and information you shared with us- thank you so much, and say "Hi!" to the kids!

Ban and Mohammad: Get Ready for 2 more years! Good Luck and thanks again for the last-minute bazaar trip!

Mike and Elisha: Congratulations on the new baby and thanks for befriending us while you were here! Showed us Hussein's Persian Kabob and Beer Paradise (couldn't ask more from a friend!). Good luck in New Hampshire!

Todd and Veena: We really enjoyed your company- Thanks for making things fun!

And thanks to anybody else that I can think of- Patrick, Nichole, Ryan, etc,etc..

Hahaha- I like that getting stationed there makes Justin an expat. :-) One day maybe....

I have greatly enjoyed reading about your time in the PI, and seeing all the wonderful photos (and hilarious videos- esp Justin's attempt at bull-riding.)

I hope you have a great time in Australia. If you're ever in the DC area and looking for a place to show off your belly dancing skills, let me know. I know just the place!

I'm glad that you enjoy the blog, and it is great to hear from you. Now we know Justin did not make you up ;-)
