Singapore: Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to our American friends and family. Many of you are probably just getting up, sticking the turkey in the oven and perhaps a log in the fireplace. We are feeling a bit homesick on this most American of holidays after sweating through the strangest Thanksgiving buffet we've ever encountered. It's about 95 degrees here, the hotel is playing Christmas carols, and we've just eaten some pretty pathetic turkey and stuffing. We did continue our family tradition of eating dessert first, but we had a hard time accepting the tempura, Japanese octopus salad, sashimi, Chinese black chicken soup, seafood fettuccini, crayfish, dragon fruit, mango and something beige and sticky described as "Asian pudding" as a truly satisfactory Thanksgiving dinner. But it beats Thanksgiving 1990 when I (Loey) was riding on a train by myself in Austria and had nothing to eat all day but Mars Bars.

Happy Thanksgiving halfway around the world! It's 39F here and a bit gray, a normal Portland holiday. Thanksgiving next year will seem even better now that you've had this adventurous but heart-felt menu.

Happy Thanksgiving to you. I enjoy your log of your travels very much and look forward to the next one. Remember, the true spirit of Thanksgiving is being thankful for all that you have. I believe that you are doing that by enjoying each other and seeing the world. You could be at work like me.:)

Wishing you a safe journey on the rest of your travels,

Kimberly Subrahmanyan
