cast of characters

Lani and Ann are the Weaver sisters!

Lani's household consists of Steve, the long-suffering coding genius and computer security guru; Jim, Lani's tall, red-headed and handsome son, currently finishing his second year of college; Hunter, Jasmine, Himari, Chenault, the miraculous Onyx and the even more miraculous Resk, undisputed feline rulers of the house; and Jesse, the man-hating green-cheeked conure.

Ann's household consists of Don, who is not just a computer genius but a pilot, a builder, and a damn good father; their son Steve, the marathon-running, college-bound, funniest teenager I know; and wonder dog Tater.

Other family members are Laurie, Lani's beautiful daughter who teaches at elementary levels; her handsome son Alex, aka Alexander the Great; Mary and Bo, a/k/a Mom and Dad, and Bud and Ann, Steve's patient and wonderful parents.

Singapore (posted by Ann)

This shot is out of the office window. It shows the performance center, which is said to look like a durian (local fruit that is supposed to smell terrible, I'll let you know after I locate some today). The boats on the river with the interesting looking balloons are practicing for National Day, a big celebration here. I think the balloons look like jellyfish, but who knows what they are supposed to be!

We went to the night zoo Thursday night, which was really interesting. You ride on a tram, and get off and take walks, and all the nocturnal animals are out and active so it's great. Here are Ash and I before we got started.

This shot is of a leopard (no flash allowed, so he's sort of dark). He was just on the other side of the glass, and was really impressive.

These are a few shots of typical downtown Singapore with the river winding through it. We had lunch under one of those awnings along the river, and it was the best Indian food I've ever had.

Ash and I went out on the street, and decided to try a local specialty. Their version of an ice cream sandwich is a brick of ice cream wrapped in a slice of bread. The bread is green and pink - we had to do it. The ice cream is good, but I have to say that tasting bread with ice cream is weird.

This last one is Mollie, who organized our visit, at the cocktail party last night. It was on a rooftop overlooking the river, and was a nice way to conclude our business here.

Today, we are going on a boat cruise to Kusu Island, and then we'll come back to the hotel, get cleaned up, and go to the airport for the flight to Sydney.

Tomorrow we'll be doing this, which I hope I will be able to do without limping for a week afterward! I'll let you know how it works out, though I don't think they let you bring a camera.

I'm missing the guys, and it's still a week until I head home. Whoever says the world is getting smaller isn't travelling with me - it's still a long way to get home, even if they do have Burger King, Starbucks, and 7-Eleven stores!
