Visiting LEAD (Philippines + Singapore)

Hong Kong Airport

Hong Kong Airport

So, I am officially in Asia for the first time! I survived—thanks to an “economy plus” seat—my 16-hour flight from Chicago to Hong Kong. I had about three hours in the Hong Kong airport, so I walked around a lot trying to recover from sitting for so long. When “what to my wandering eyes should appear” but a jazz combo playing away in this little second-floor café!


It just seemed so incongruous to be in the bustling Hong Kong airport and hear American jazz being played live. I sat down, ordered a beer and just enjoyed the moment.

My flight to Manila was less than two hours long, and I arrived shortly after midnight on Thursday morning. Getting through customs went very quickly and once I retrieved my bag, there was Brother Marty to greet me. By 1:00am we had arrived at De La Salle University, and I was in my room at the Brothers residence. I promptly unpacked and crawled in to bed.

I had a good rest and just finished lunch seated at the same table as Brother Ricky Laguda, General Councilor, the one I had not yet met, since he was not present at the General Chapter.

Soon, I’ll be getting a tour of DLSU. Stay tuned!
