this post comes straight from Changi Airport in Singapore, Matthew and I are hitting up the free internet terminals – we managed to walk on to a vacant one – most have long lines. score!

We arrived safely with only a few arguments between the family. where is my boarding pass, where is my _______ etc.

Didn’t need to bring a book etc on the plane with me – I had 60 movies, 120 tv shows, 220 music albums and 12 radio stations, plus all the games.

I watched Coach Carter and Hotel Rawanda, both pretty powerful movies, manged to get up to the 500 000 pound question on who wants to be a millionaire as well.

Well we are off to find some slurpees and look at the gardens as well as checking out the very, very, very cheap booze.

Till London, Peace Up A-Town.

ETA well the 7-11 did not had slurpees <= how can they call themselves a 7-11? The subway has Iced Lemon Tea on tap! We found a super cool internet place where we have webcams and microphones as well as x-boxes and tv on request - pretty rocking! If you want to add me to your MSN List it is simply msnAThelenthuraDOTcom ๐Ÿ™‚ the webcam is pretty cool. Though they are using IE instead of Firefox ๐Ÿ™

T minus 23hrs

well we are past the 24hr mark now!
In the last stages of packing – at the moment my bag is 13kg! – max allowed to europe is 20kg (USA is 32kg) – so lots of room to stock up on stuff.
Mum just made a nice carry strap for my tripod – sure beats the manfrotto strap which would have costed AU$50.
Going out tonight for a farwell night out, heaps or friends and their friends as well, but of course 2 people have piked already ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™ pikers

This map reminds me of a tag I made a while ago – I dream of … The journalling reads: I dream of colour in Chile. I dream of Crabtree & Evelyn in London. I dream of music in Cuba. I dream of the spiced air of Morocco. I dream of glass in Venice. I dream of lush grass in the Swiss Alps. I dream of ceramics in the Middle East. I dream of cherry blossoms in Japan. I dream of sunsets in Tahiti. I dream of nights on the Russian tundra. I dream of tea in India. I dream of bagels in NYC. I dream of soccer in Brazil. I dream of frescos in Italy. I dream of limes in Florida. I dream of hope in Somalia. I dream of family in Iceland. I dream of the unknown in Athens, WV. I dream of wildflowers in WA. I dream of laughter in Vietnam. I dream of solitude in Nepal. I dream of the World. I dream of every grain of sand to every leaf to every person. I dream of a place I have so much more to discover. I dream of the World. I dream of living the World. Where have you been?
