My boss is looking for two people to send to the Philippines for at least three months (with the option for a longer time) starting sometime in September. What kind of things should I be considering before I tell him if I'm interested or not? I would be paid my current salary, be put up in a hotel in Manila, and receive a per diem for food and expenses. Also, what's the Manila like? I scanned the CIA factbook, Wikipedia, and have read Cryptonomicon a few times, but I don't really know much about that part of the world. I promise I'd try to attend any MoFi meetups over there if I go in lieu of the September Toronto one.
Curious George: moving to the Philippines What should I be aware of?
