Layover in Shanghai before returning home. Looking back I realize…

And all good things shall come to an end…

I party it up with some classy ladies in Singapore on National Day:



I return the favor by having their apartment served:



The next morning (however difficult it was to get up for various reasons), I explore the very fake beach of Siloso at Sentosa Island:


 

And I try an original Singapore Sling at Long Bar in Raffles Hotel:


The Singapore Sling is the one on the left

 

Columbia Reunion in Singapore! Lillian, BX, and Andrea:


 

Saying goodbye once again, whether to Singapore, to friends, to coincidences, to fate, or to these adventures:

But the Maglev looked a lot wimpier than I had expected:

 

 

Coming into Pudong:

 

 

This was probably the fastest I have (or anyone has, for that matter) ever traveled at ground speed:

 

I attempt to continue an adventure that probably has already ended

- At time of posting in Shanghai, China, it was 89.6 °F -

Humidity: 66% | Wind Speed: 1km/hr | Cloud Cover: partly cloudy
