Just left Kuala Lumpur this evening on my way to Paris for a year. Stopping by Singapore for a few days first. The checked in luggage was almost at thelimit. Although the official limit is 20kg per person in this part of the world, the rule of thumb is that if you dont exceed 30kg each you're safe. The only problem is I have a backpack full of photographic equipment and a trolley with two notebooks (one powerbook for personal use and a Dell for the office) so the hand carry is already at least 20kg! I've created a new category called France, which I hope to document the 1 year in France starting next week... If everything according to plan.
