It all started in the faculty room, where we were about to have our friendship lunch (because July 4th in the Philippines is Filipino-American Friendship Day). What a perfect occasion to celebrate!

Yet, when the whole entire faculty got up and started singing "Leaving on a Jet Plane" by John Denver, I looked at Sandy who was already in tears, I suddenly realized: this is it, we are leaving in a few days. Will we see these wonderful people again? Will we be able to have our friendship lunches together? Will we be able to come to the Philippines again? I don't know; nobody does. But I certainly hope so.
