Christmas in SE Asia

Here I am in the Singapore airport, where they have free internet terminals scattered throughout. How handy for time-killing if there is such a thing at airports after one has made their way through the maze of airport security and immigration.

I'm about to fly up to Taipei. It still doesn't feel much like Christmas, despite my evening last night spent singing Christmas carols in one of the cathedrals of Singapore. Maybe it's the drenching sweat that appears on my clothing the minute I walk out of an air-conditioned building. Maybe it's the no cards, no gifts, no family thing. I don't know.

No matter my feelings, I wish you all a Merry, Merry Christmas, a few days early. May you all make it home to your loved ones if that is your wish. And eats lots of Christmas cookies for me!

Buon Natale! Feliz Navidad! Joyeux Noel! That's as far as I can get...the only time we can break a sweat here is 2 inches from our woodstove or RUNNING on the treadmill in our basement which is at 56 degrees!
We love you, miss you and can't wait to see you again..sometime, someplace...?Rome or Sorrento in April.
love, auntie verdle and unka ross
