Everything was on track for a 25 hour trip until the plane had a mechanical problem enroute to Manila and had to return to Nagoya Japan. Ended up spending 17 hours getting it fixed and back in the air. Manila wasn't bad and was on a bus heading north in a few hours. Unfortunately the roads were flooded and bridges were out and we had to travel mostly back roads. This took it's toll on the bus we were riding and had to switch to another bus. Finally got home 10:30pm Saturday. All in all, it was a ok trip. While I was waiting at the bus station in Manila a really clean 98' Dodge Ram 4x4 pulled in to pickup some boxes. We don't see many Dodge trucks over here and it cheered me up some. Having fun in the land of smiles...

Sounds like a remake of "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles".

Not far wrong, just have to go with the (sic) flow...
