Home Again!!!

I did arrive safely home in Singapore early Thursday morning after a long flight. I had an unusual thing happen when our flight landed in Tokyo. We were all asked to stay seated as there would be a team of quarantine experts coming on the plane and taking each passengers temperature before we could get off the plane. We also were required to fill out a form stating we were not sick and had not been around anyone that was sick. The government was taking strong precautions to not let the swine influenza enter their country. Needless to say--there was a young lady on our flight that evidently had a temperature because all those around her were required to stay on the plane for further questioning etc. Thankfully I was not too close to her and was allowed to exit the plane. This took well over an hour so I was very grateful to get off and get some walking in and stretch my legs after sitting for nearly 10 hours. I did take a few pictures so you can get the idea of what it looked like on the plane :)



The entry to Singapore was not so eventful. They just checked everyone as you left the plane.
I was very happy to see Larry waiting at the baggage claim area. It was about 3:00am when we arrived at our apartment.

It was a very special time to be with our kids and grandkids.
Now I have to adjust to a tropical climate again and a rather quiet apartment.

Hugs to Ellie, Owen, Kadence and Cash!!! I sure love you lots!!!! :)

Super interesting and Soooo Singapore and Japan!! With the masks and all. When we were in Singapore ages ago we used to laugh about all the laws like "no chewing gum", etc. Glad you got home healthy.
