And we're off!!!
Nobody took us to the airport, so our exit was anti-climactic.
At the castle I gave a big hug to Angie, Abraham, and Memong and tried to say goodbye to Solomon. He refused to come out of his bedroom and when I asked him to open the door so that I could say goodbye, it just prompted him to shout out a curt "goodbye" through the door. Oh well, I'll see you in 10 years, I guess.
We drove the truck to the airport on our own and gave the keys to Cal's oldest son, who works as an officer with the ports authority at the airport. I gave him a big hug and thanked him for letting us use his Dad's truck for two weeks.
So once again, goodbye, Saipan. I hope I get to see you again soon.
