En Route

It's 5:00 a.m. in Singapore.  Jet lag has had me awake since 3:30.

The city is magical at this hour.  Absolutely silent.  Dead quiet.  A city of five million people and you can hear your own heartbeat.  In a few hours Singapore will be pulsing with life, but now all is cool, still and tranquil.

We've made it this far on our journey back to Papua.  We'll be here a few more days before pushing off to Jakarta and then on to Sentani.

Reading G.K. Chesterton's Orthodoxy right now, a delightful read that has you alternating between rapidly turning pages and putting the pages down and digesting what you've just read.  Chesterton is eminently quotable; here's one for today:

...if a man would make his world large, he must be always making himself small.
