Touchdown in Singapore

18 hours and 32 minutes after leaving Los Angeles airport I arrived safely in Singapore. The flight was long but manageable, especially since the crowded plane was packed, with the exception of the seat next to mine- SCORE!

After navigating customs and baggage claim at Changi airport, I promptly got a new SIM card & local phone number and purchased an EZLink card for public transit use on the MRT, LRT and buses.

My hotel, Fragrance Waterfront, is located near the National University of Singapore and after waking up at 4 am with jet lag, I decided to go on a run and explore.

It was pretty dark out but I was impressed by the behemoth buildings, impeccable landscaping, the sports hall, and amenities. Grabbed a picture of this snack machine as I thought it offered some scrumptious food choices.

Running home I smelled incense in the air and during my cool down I saw small ornate alters burning in the foyers of business and homes. A wonderful way to be reminded of all I am thankful for.
