What a beginning to our international adventure. From Phoenix to Manila in 24 hours. Luckily we only ran into one two hour delay during our stop in Tokyo. Delta Airlines did an excellent job of keeping us comfortable during the long hours of flight. Between the free inflight entertainment which included numerous movies (many of which were new releases), the free beer, wine and cocktails, and the food we thoroughly enjoyed this leg of our journey. Though we didn't stay in Manila for any significant amout of time to explore the city's rich history and vibrant culture, we did see enough to pique our interest and beckon us back eventually.
