I'm Back in the USA! by Cecilia Brainard

 Hurrah! I'm back in the USA!

This is how the travel from Cebu to Los Angeles goes, on Philippine Airlines.

You have to be at the Cebu airport two hours before departure. The flight to Manila is one hour. When you arrive Manila, you have to exit the Domestic building and walk up to the International departure area. You have to be screened all over again. You pay your terminal fee of P550, then go stand in another line to go through the Immigration officials. You're screened one more time, then you're in the terminal section with the various departure gates.

You're screened one last time to get to a smaller holding area.  Another wait, then you get on your plane, and it's a little over a 13 hour flight from Manila to Los Angeles. When all is said and done, it takes around 18 hours to get from one end of the world to the next. There's time change, so you leave and arrive on the same day. (You lose a day.)

But I made it back without any problems!  Yaay!

More tomorrow then, if I'm not too jetlagged.
