I Have Now Peed In Two New Countries

Hello from beautiful Singapore, where I landed a few hours ago. I’m with my friend Meredith (who some of you Boston Skeptics have met), and we’ll soon meet up with another good friend (Eve, who some of you met at NECSS). We’ll then begin traveling around Southeast Asia, taking trains and buses up through Malaysia to Thailand and then possibly into Cambodia and Myanmar. (I know, that last one is tricky. I hope to post more about that later, particularly concerning one amazingly heroic and strong woman.)

I haven’t run into anything requiring serious skeptical inquiry just yet, but I’ve been poring over a guidebook that suggests some Skepchick-worthy stuff. Though my Netbook is refusing to play nicely with wifi connections and might not come with me, I’m sure I’ll be stopping in the occasional Internet cafe to give updates.

Oh, and on the way to Singapore I stopped in Qatar to pee, which I announced on Twitter, and which therefore inspired the headline above. I’m sorry, pee jokes make me laugh.

  1. Rebecca,
    I’ve been totally out of touch with the world, and only just heard all your recent news. So Congradulations, and wishes for many years of happiness.

    Coincidentally, my mother currently lives in Yorkshire, and loves it. I hope you enjoy the place as much as she does.

    Weatherwax.

  2. Check http://www.lonelyplanet.com/thorntree/index.jspa for border crossing from Thai.

    Last time I was there the crossing into Cambodia was no prob. Travel agencies in Kao san rd. arrange visa np. Just beware the road to Angkor Wat is the worst road in the world. Medicate yourself generously before taking the bus. But Angkor Wat is WELL worth it.

    Crossing into Myanmar is trixy afaik, but easily checked in said travel agencies. Not sure if thats worth the bother though since you only get a day visa. Again, afaik.
    PS I cant resist not to gloat, but Im going to Myanmar for a whole month in Feb next year. o/
