Since we have practically no time in Singapore, which is the shortest stop in this tour, we are accepting Singapore Airlines' gracious offer of a Singapore Sling in the lounge. here in Hongq Kong. We should arrive there mid-evening and have our Community Sing tomorrow at 1pm and concert at 7.30.  We really enjoyed Singapore last time and are sorry we'll have to leave for Taipei the next morning. On the other hand Eric's the only one who's been to Taiwan, so that will be all new for the rest of us.

6 hours later, we're here having taken a bit more time than predicted going around a typhoon.   It's 96 degrees and hazy from fires in Indonesia, but we're all happy to be here and to perform at the Esplanade again.
