Reports From Tomorrow

Letters Home from an Expat

The following is a simple index of a series of letters we wrote home describing our time in Singapore. These were sent out with alarming regularity begining in March 1998 and each was called a Report From Tomorrow, acknowledging the time warp one feels on the Asian side of the dateline. These were sent to a mailing list that grew to over eighty people. These Web pages are simply a way to preserve the mail and present the material in a slightly better format.


Here is the directory where all our Singapore pictures which are referenced in the Reports From Tomorrow live. This is a more convenient way to browse the pictures than hunt through the reports.
