We're back. Thanks for all of your comments (WOW! I was amazed at how many of you out there are reading my blog, thank you!)
It is good to be back, though I despise the humidity even more.
A bit of bad news...with the heat paired with the humidity of the typhoon, my gadget didn't do such a good job. I now have lots of dried rosemary, basil and other foliage....sigh.
I'll try to post about our adventure soon. Thanks again for all the nice comments.
