Packed up at Heathrow
   I'm in Singapore enjoying the free internet but not really liking the humidity in here. With a bit of luck I'll find a way to get an ethernet cable so I can get my own computer online because I really need something to do with my stopover here, and shopping isn't for me. I could buy a 'travel' cable but they are charging way too much and it would defeat the purpose of free internet. Not long now....
final farewell
My final farewell

updated a little while later
   OK so I have myself a seat and I can take a moment to upload photos. Marko, James and Sarah came to say goodbye at the airport. It was a pretty scary drive with the windows all fogged up and really heavy rain cutting visibility, but we got there with loads of time to spare so we wandered the halls for a while. I managed to get away without paying for any excess baggage. My secret? Sending stuff as 'books' made it cheaper in England, and then I put all my heavy stuff into my small backpack and then I got a bag labeled Duty Free into which I dumped my generic white bag (containing loads of sweets) and some spare clothes. No questions, no fees :-)
   I guess it is time I left here and started the long trek back to terminal 2, I wish I had a pair of these.

   I am sitting in the internet lounge of Singapore's Changi airport. Seeing as I brought my own computer it is free, which is handy because I don't know the exchange rate here.
   The flight was excellent and I highly recommend Singapore Airlines. The seats were big enough, and had a personal TV mounted in the headrest infront, from which I have been sending free text messages, pretty cool. After sunset I slept quite a bit because of last nights frantic packing and video editing session. Hopefully this will get me into the English time zone before I get there. The airport is great, with themed rest areas and even a mini game show session that i caught the end of. I've no idea of the exchange rate so I am not going to buy any of the plentiful electronic gadgets that I can see from here, even though I am very tempted.
   Well, I guess I should go board my next flight, as Mike pointed out, London's Calling
