I can’t tell you how touched I was to be included in this table of friends that included some very important people in Manila.
And how kind of our host tonight to invite a table full of strangers for a tour of his very impressive private museum, an eight course meal, and a private concert of opera favorites by two of the country’s top opera performers.
Sorry, no names this time, as it was an incredibly private party hosted by a very private person.
THE STORIES OF MY SEATMATE
But tomorrow I’ll continue this story and tell you about my seatmate at this dinner.
He was with President Obama both times he won the presidential elections, and he knew Charlie Wilson — as in Charlie Wilson from the movie that Tom Hanks starred in — personally.
It truly is a never-ending, and never-endingly eventful Travelife. Every single day.
