Here we are starting out from Santa Cruz. The weather was perfect; clear and warm with amazing views along the coast. I even surprised myself and made it up the hills which was more than I expected to be able to do with the lack of training. It was great fun to connect with the group again and perfect timing to end up down in San Luis Obispo in time for Homecoming celebrations there and to see Cameron. She's all moved into her house and I enjoyed seeing old roommates and meeting the new ones.
Coming back into Singapore actually felt like home this time and either the weather is getting cooler or I'm getting more used to it. The orchid that our landlady gave us in April is flowering again-a real surprise for me as I usually manage to kill any green plant within a few weeks. To keep this one alive and actually have it flower again is a shock.
I'm off to Bhutan via Bangkok this afternoon; hoping the airport stays open with all the flooding they are having there. I'll be back in two weeks and will post pictures and stories when I return.
