The Asian Excursion (Part 1)
I know I have to post parts 2 and 3 of a previous blog, but since I'm actually in Singapore, I thought I'd write a few things now. I'm on the start of a long journey through Asia. Most of it was last minute, but luckily I was able to incorporate some of the things that I wanted to do. The primary reason for the trip from a personal perspective was getting to India to see family. One of the drawbacks to living so far away (US vs India) is that you see your family so rarely. It's been around 5 years since I've been, and as my dad keeps pointing out - nobody is getting any younger. (Myself included!) The trip is going to be a crazy one. I left Houston on Nov 30 and arrived in Moscow on Dec 1. I was in Moscow about 2 hours then took a 9 hour flight to Singapore. I arrived in Singapore on Dec 2 at 5:00AM. It was about 23 hours of travel time just to get to Singapore. I leave Singapore around 1:40 in the afternoon to head to Kuala Lumpur where I change planes and go to Jakarta - where I arrive at 5:30PM.

Here is a glimpse of why I love Singapore's Changi Airport:
And the awesome food court:
And why jet-lag is no fun:
Alright, time to grab some food and get ready to hit the next flight.
