Then we had a 3 and a half-ish hour flight to Manila. It was after midnight when we landed. Then of course we had to go through security and customs, and then wait forever for our luggage. Since we were in Detroit so early, our luggage was the first on the plane and therefore the last off. I was starting to panic by the time it finally showed up at the very end of the luggage parade. The airport was hot, stuffy, and crowded. Finally we were able to leave and find our liason, Michelle. She and another lady and the driver took us to our hotel, which ended up being in a pretty shady part of town.
But we only got to stay there for a few hours, long enough to sleep a bit and take a cold shower. Then it was back to the airport, a different part for domestic flights.
