Alright so here's what happened...there I was sitting in my plane seat when the pilot says "shit man we gotta land" and so my mule Kyle starts freakin out and ranting about people who sleep while they walk and other gibberish. But the plane lands in this place called singapore AND ITS HOT...REALLY FREAKIN HOT. Right away, as I'm unpacking my bag in the airport to take the airport cover off of it and stuff, I look over and a guard with a machine gun is 10 feet away trying to stare a hole through my spine. I smile. He frowns. I continue packing my bag and get out of there and onto our bus to the hotel. At this point it dawns on me, as I see a guy in a giant cone shaped rice hat mowing the lawn that we're on the wrong side of the world and we don't know anybody or anything about the city and the only info we have is a hotel name. Then I got excited. We got to our hotel just fine and it was actually really nice with an awesome view of downtown. The buildings here are all amazing, they dont do anything half assed in Singapore. Someone from our great civilization of Alberta must have come here to show the natives how to build stuff. Also the trees and other plants everywhere are fantastically layed out and are also of types slightly stranger than poplars and spruce to say the least. Luckily someone decided not to put gibberish on the signs and used the one and only reasonable language...English...for 99 percent of everything. Fantastic. For our first evening we had sushi at a great little hole in the ground place and then just walked around until jet lag kicked our asses. With my mule Kyle exhausted and my feet hurting we went back to the hotel for sleep. With no stables for my mule i was forced to let him sleep in my room but I dealt with it.
