First time I’ve been out without an umbrella & it’s raining. Finally! It’s been so hot and humid.

There is so much smoke in the sky from forest fires in Sumatra. It’s horrible. I haven’t seen blue sky since Thursday in Adelaide.

I’m enjoying spending time on my own and I have so much more confidence as a solo traveller than when I was first overseas on my own in 2000. There’s no way I would have jumped on the metro at 7pm at night to see what was at a certain stop.

I’ve met locals, eaten with my hands with Indians in Little India and drunk some dirt cheap beer.

Did I mention the walking (& the blister!!!), there’s been so much walking. Museums, galleries, shopping centres, historical districts, gardens.

Tonight I’m heading to Changi Airport where I’ll be checking in for my Singapore to London flight. 13 hours. I hope I can get some sleep. With any luck I might even get a shower before I get on the plane!
