I have safely arrived in Singapore. This is my room for the time being with a view of palm trees and the pool. I am staying with a family who has graciously opened up their home to me whilst they are away. The father is Swedish, and thus far I have been comforted by various Swedish cookbooks and notes around the house. I am now so tired I am ready to fall into bed and be done with the day. I must report to work tomorrow morning at eight thirty sharp; I have a test to help administer. Still, I can't believe I'm here!
