Day 2 – the spokanites (and the eagle) have landed! Singapore

2010-01-20 Spokanites Hitched 2010 World Tour 02 - Singapore 001

Let the games begin!  We touched down in Singapore just after midnight and were picked up by our driver Andrew who was waiting with the sign pictured above.  What a great start.

Following a great sleep, we spent the day in Singapore walking around Robertson Quay.  After lunch, it was off to the Singapore Zoo (one of Sonya’s favorite pastimes).  If you haven’t been, it is an excellent one (as far as zoos go).  That night, our friend Kathryn took us out for a lovely meal at Oosh, complete with bubbles and excellent food. 

The following afternoon we headed off to Sri Lanka for the big show (wedding), but not before a great lunch with Kathryn’s husband Mark.  Topic of discussion: adding a Singapore show when we pass back through on Feb 9th (Singaporeans – look for news on that shortly).

We’d say we are off to a good start…

The Spokanites

For those of you who don’t know, Sonya’s birthday was on the 20th.  Given that we left on the 19th and landed in Singapore on the 21st (crossing the international date line), the only time we experienced the 20th was over the pacific and during our short layover in Tokyo.

That, however, did not stop the Spokanites from celebrating.  Here’s a photo of Sonya with her cupcake delivered via flight attendant (but from Trophy Cupcakes in Seattle courtesy of Mr. Hylton).  We got a happy tear out of her so I think it was a good birthday after all. 

In Singapore now, but off to Sri Lanka tomorrow for the first show.  Can’t wait!!!

Please wish Sonya a belated happy birthday by adding some comments.
