Rental car arrived
Welcome to the USA
Bong, Girlie, Rafael and Nitz
Girlie and Mayan
A big journey was waiting for us today.
It takes longer than expected until the rental car arrived (Guess what? The renter didn´t found the key. Can this be true?) - and before we could started our really far journey to Chicago/USA.
The kids were as good as gold during the whole trip - that lasted 8 or 9 hours I think. That's never happened to me before (with other children). I pay you a high compliment - well done!!
Also a high compliment to Nitz, who is a very good and safe driver.
We were awaited by Oliver (Bong), the husband of Girlies cousin Mary Ann (Mayan) and the children Marcus and Olivia. Bong has cooked a really delicious filipino soup. So good to be awaited and to be spoiled in such a pleasant way.
After work Mayan joined in - and we all had a funny evening playing Rock Band.
Also this family welcomed me warmhearted and I felt very comfortable in their house and circle.
Thanks for all Mayan and Bong!! It was a pleasure for me to get to know you! I hope, we´ll see us again someday!!
