Wow.. so I have finally arrived in Singapore.. I have always wanted to go here for a long time and now the opportnity has finally come (even if its for a short while). I arrived into Changi airport around 6am. I knew the hostel wouldn't have reception open until 8 so I decided to get some breakfast there and use the Wi-Fi to make some calls and check up on my emails. I didn't mention before (I don't think) but my next stop is in Hong Kong and I am supposed to be couchsurfing with a guy there. When I was in Nairobi the other day, I checked my email and found out that he couldn't host me anymore. I sent out a few emergency emails to other surfers, but so far, I haven't had any luck!.. Hopefully something will come through because I didn't plan to be by myself in a city I've never been too!!.
So I finally left the airport and headed to my hostel around 8am. The place where I am staying is called the Inn Crowd. This is my first time ever staying in a hostel so it should be interesting!! When I arrived around 8:30, there weren't any beds available for me to crash in until 12 so I waited in the main lounge area for about an hour, debating on whether or not I should go out or try and sleep (I didn't sleep but an hour or so the night before!). What didn't help was that there was no air conditioner in the hostel and it was so freakin' humid so I was all clothes and sweat!!.. I eventually laid down on a couch determined to get some sleep before I went out. I think I got about 20 minutes before I woke up just completely drenched (sorry for the details!). So I gained my composure and went out to conquer Singapore!!! I left the hostel around 11:30 am and just went walking.
