I’ve been in the Philippines for a couple of weeks; not much time to see things outside the family circle, too much fun eating, swimming, and chatting. I did get to the Araneta Coliseum to see the San Miguel Beermen play in the league semi-finals, under the management of my famous cousin-in-law, Hector Calma. Unfortunately, they lost the game, but they came yesterday afternoon to win decisively, taking the best of seven series, and earning a place in the finals this week.
It looks like I will have an unexpected day free tomorrow, and perhaps part of the next day. I’m interested in suggestions from kindred spirits about things to take a look at related to planning, public transportation, sensors, education, and science. (Already in mind: going out to the University of the Philippines; I’d like to stop by the library at the School of Urban and Regional Planning and see what they have.)
