After the quick but fierce invasion of Supertyphoon Santi which caused delays in the arrival of flights into the Philippines late Friday evening till Saturday morning last week, the girls of Miss Earth 2009 have started to arrive. In particular, three early birds (Misses USA, Sweden and South Africa) checked-in before the bad weather made its landfall so they were spared the hassle of long layovers for their connecting flights to Manila. They are currently housed at the Carousel Gardens before checking in as a group at Discovery Suites today or tomorrow. Here are some photos of the girls already in town for the competition.
There are more girls who arrived last night and their photos will be posted here in the next few blogs. In the meantime, I would like to acknowledge Melvin Sia of OPMB Worldwide Forums for the images above.
More arrival pictures coming up!
