I leave for Asia on Monday evening, aboard China Southern's A380 Airbus, along with 600 others. If you need me I'll be on the second floor of the huge plane, flying for 15 hours just to get to Guangzhou (广州) and then another 2 hours to Sanya (三亚) on Hainan Island. It's best known for being the southernmost Chinese city and training area for their Olympic Beach Volleyball team (yea!).

After work with Chevron's China Energy Leadership Team, I fly to Manila on Saturday Feb 2 for a week in the Philipinnes. I'll also hook up with my son-in-law's father, Ernie Parrish, an American Filipino who will show me some sights. Maybe we'll watch the Super Bowl on Monday at 7 AM!
Then all week (Feb 3-8) I will be visiting some of the most sacred of the American war memorials overseas: Corregedor and Bataan. Then up to the Lingayen Gulf to get any info on Dad's ship's bombing.
