I am on the 54th floor of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore. This place is like a small city. My 11 hour plane ride from Munich to Singapore was very pleasant. Singapore Airlines offered a broad variety of entertainment and this allowed med to watch 21 Jump Street, Safe House, the start of a Dirty Harry movie and then listen to the Door's Greatest Hits twice. I even got some work done while waiting to board the flight from Munich. In Singapore, it is tropical and humid. I experienced my first heavy rain storm and ate my first Chinese meal in a month. I made my first visit to NUS and liked what I saw.
