To Singapore serenity, Sydney pragmatism, Tokyo twist, Mumbai madness. Planes that connected. Trains that ran. Stories from taxi drivers. Awesome Asian food. Great audiences who got it. The privilege of exploring other countries and cultures. Starbucks free wifi and the top team who did the night shift at 24h Starbucks, Raffles City. The go anywhere, do anything iPad. And living out of 9kg of stuff. Getting 8h of sleep occasionally. To encounters with amazing people, museums, galleries, architecture. Eating brilliantly for a dollar. Realising that you are not hallucinating. Maybe. Flipping your thinking through 180 degrees, once again. Individuals sharing in a mail or txt how your teaching is working for them already. Stumbling across new books in book shops down back streets of an old empire. Saying no 18 times to a new suit in china town. Bottles of fresh water. To being constantly reminded of how simply awesome humans are at their best and that planet Earth is the best neighbourhood in the whole damn Universe.
