I don't intend to go back, not so much because of the travel time but because I was very disappointed with the country.
    What disappointed you?

    For a few dollars a paycheck, now, you could start a fund that could secure you a decent care option when you are an old fart. If you wait 'til your my age to sweat it, it will probably be too late.

    I don't wish to highjack Lon's thread as I could write a short book on the problems with The Philippines. Suffice it to say, the horrible traffic, congestion everywhere, oppressive heat and humidity . . . .

    Long Term Care Insurance is the answer.
