I finally got a decent night's sleep last night. I needed it.

Right now, I'm busy downloading a new release of the software I'm training to my laptop, listening to Wes Montgomery, and waiting to get onto Air France's website so that I can check in for my flight tomorrow evening, which is in just over 24 hours from now. Internet access has been outstanding here in Singapore. Most of the world seems to be a lot more wired than we are. In the interest of keeping the peace, at least for now, I'll keep my comment on that score to myself.

We had dinner at a "Mexican" restaurant on Clarke Quay this evening. They had burritos and tacos, after a fashion, as well as tortilla chips and queso sauce. The music they played was an odd conglomeration of Latin music, most of which was Cuban or Puerto Rican, none of which was from Mexico (it was nice to hear the Gipsy Kings' rendition of "Volare", though). Nevertheless, the food was good (I had chicken basted in lime and grilled with a tequila glaze, a skewer of vegetables and scalloped potatoes) and the ambiance was OK. I headed back after dinner and have been here, getting ready to go home.

If I do come back later this year for the next round of training (or at any time in the future), I will definitely stay longer and take pictures and do more tourist stuff.

Anyway, I'm doing the next round of downloading now. I'm off to check in for tomorrow night.
