Well here I am in the Studio M Hotel in Singapore, listening to the singers in the bar singing various old songs - they're actually quite good. Unfortunately my laptop is struggling to connect to the hotel's internet so I will try and sort that out tomorrow. I'm posting this using one of the hotel's computers. I will be arriving in Perth on Monday and as soon as I get there it is full steam ahead with preparing for the fieldwork. I really do think it's a good thing to break the journey in Singapore (or wherever!) as it is a long way to go in one go. I do want to stress that this couple of days break in Singapore is NOT A SHOPPING BREAK - as certain, nameless colleagues suggested! I've actually got various documents I need to prepare before I arrive in Perth and also I want to visit the very large (and apparently amazing) science and technology museum here in Singapore but I haven't decided if I will do that tomorrow or Sunday.
Anyway as this is not a particularly exciting post I will stop there. Hopefully I'll get the laptop working tomorrow and I can upload some piccies etc.
