The other night I shared pizza with young cousins Harry and James in Lafayette, California. I discovered that they visited one of my all-time favorite places—Loreto, Baja California Sur, Mexico.

On January 28, I arrived in Manila, the capital of the Philippines, one of the 16 cities that make up “Metro Manila,” the most densely populated urban area in the world—reaching an estimated daytime population of 17 million people, about 1/6 of the country’s population.  It was my first visit to Manila and I was excited about meeting with government officials and others to talk about ASEAN and its role in ocean issues.

Last week, the Collaborative Institute for Oceans, Climate, and Security held its first conference at the University of Massachusetts Boston Campus—appropriately, the campus is surrounded by water.  The beautiful views were obscured by wet foggy weather for the first two days, but we got glorious weather on the last day.
