This weekend I'm off to Clark Freeport, site of the former US Air Force base in Angeles City, Pampanga, and host to the annual hot air balloon festival. We got there just before five pm, in time for the planned night balloon flights, but strong winds caused them to be scrubbed. Hopefully tomorrow the weather cooperates.

How to get there: Clark is about 2 hour drive from Manila, via the North Luzon Expressway (exit at Dau)
