Leaving for Manila
In a few hours time, I shall be boarding a plane that shall hopefully deposit me unscathed in Manila. Thus will begin my first international t ournament, the Asian Univ. Debating Championships. One hopes to make an impression, one hopes the training wasn't in vain. One really hopes to break, in short. It's been a long summer of training, and lets see if it all comes together and pays off.
That said, its a whole new country to check out, an entire new adventure, and an exchange rate even weaker than the INR. From one of the most polluted cities in the world, Manila, to the beaches and hopefully a trip to Mt. Pinatubo, a volcano that produced one of the largest eruptions of the 20th century, it promises to be a fun trip.
Au revoiur, and wish me luck.
