After a few days without internet and many without news, we arrived this afternoon at the Singapore Airport for our flights to Paris.  I noticed that flights to Bangkok and Jakarta were cancelled and wondered if it had to do with the political situation in Thailand.  When I hooked up to wifi, I read an email from my mom about a plane crash off the coast of Vietnam.  A few minutes ago, I just finished reading about the Malaysia Airlines plane that disappeared with all 239 passengers presumed dead.  We are so sad to hear this news.  We were also on a flight off the coast of Vietnam on Saturday.  Our thoughts are with the friends and families of the passengers and crew.
