My journey from the US back to the Philippines was a rough one. I tested positive for COVID (possibly a false positive) and had to push my flight out a week – that was a week of hotel quarantine and at-home tests. The silver lining was some extra albeit unplanned time with my mom and awesome take-out food. Little Lucca offers crab sandwiches on Fridays! … Continue reading A Layover in Waikiki
