I write to you from a coffee shop in Singapore where April showers are alive and well. No seriously, it’s fucking pouring here. I thought it was the dry season? And dammit, why aren’t we in a bar? I’ve spent the last two weeks in Southeast Asia, and I’ve learned quite a lot: 1.) Thailand has a deep love for Adele, 2.) I really need to invest in a backpack, and 3.) I’m totally okay with riding in the backs of strange trucks as a mode of long distance transportation. Seriously, my parents would smack me in the face if they saw the creepy white minivans that were endlessly presented to us as our “buses”. While trying to get to a remote island, I rode in one for about six hours sans AC and full of mosquitos. That’s Thailand, folks!
But for real, it’s amazing over here. The food is incredible. The beaches are unbelievably beautiful. The people have such an ease about them – completely different from the hustle and bustle I’m used to in NYC. And despite the fact that I probably could have lived happily ever after in the tiny beach town of Koh Lanta giving $4 massages and moving my ass to dance remixes of Set Fire to the Rain, I realize that what we have in our big city is actually pretty special. I may have a 19-hour flight, in which I’ll inevitably have to sit bitch, ahead of me, I’m excited to come home for a number of reasons, and one of them is all of the amazing shows coming up this month.
