I'm in Hong Kong now, after 15 hours in the air, during which we flew over the North Pole, which came as a surprise. I figured it out: it probably is closer to fly over Canada, Siberia, Mongolia and China than it is to go across the Pacific, and less time consuming.

I have a couple of hours to wait here. More when I get to Singapore.

OK: I'm here in one piece, I haven't fried my laptop (although the light that shows the battery is charging is acting funny), I'm at the hotel (which is very nice) and I'm ready to go to bed. Except that I'm too wired to do so. Too much coffee will do that.

I haven't figured out the television yet. It's one of these newfangled do-jobbies that doesn't work the way I think it should work. Maybe I'm just tired and need to go to bed. Yeah, that's it. Good night.
