Leavin' on a jet plane, don't know when I'll be back again

I'm leaving in the morning for a vacation in the Philippines, my first time back in over 24 years. I'll be spending a lot of time in Mindanao, the Philippines' large southern island where Abu Sayyaf and all the other Muslim terrorists are based. And they're not the only concern, either. I'll be about 30 minutes away from Kidapawan, a city which just had another bombing by Mafia-style extortionists. On top of all that, anyone who looks Western is a prime target for kidnapping anywhere in the country. I look reasonably Filipino but not quite, although I should be fine.

Anyway, I expect to return on the night of the 22nd.
