This Is Interesting

Another successful day with the kids and another successful rehearsal with Julian and Jiu-Jian.  Walked to the DES (Dance Ensemble Singapore) studio which is maybe 6 blocks away.  Not a long walk, but in the middle of the day, it was HOT.  I had to stop for a delicious lemon ice tea before I could cross the street to start rehearsing.  Life is tough, isn't it?

After rehearsal, dim sum dinner in Chinatown - yum yum.  Walked back to the hotel, so at least I got some exercise which means I get to eat more tomorrow.  Hooray!

But here's what is interesting.  Read the article I've linked to below.  It was in the Singapore Straits Times this morning.  I think the topic will surprise my American readers, as it deals with censoring the arts.  Yes, they have a censorship board here in Singapore.  Really, read the article...and no, I'm not going to get censored while I'm performing here!

Did get to see 4 different temples today - 2 Hindu and 2 Buddhist.  The Hindu temples are extremely ornate.  Sorry, no photos, but I'm sure Richard will want to see them, so I'll return later this week.

Tomorrow's agenda - coffee with an American friend of a friend, 3 hours of lessons and 2 hours of rehearsal. Life is good!
