Angus has bowed out of the race, with the tragic news of his demise:
Please accept my apologies for not getting back to you sooner, Brendan.
Singapore airlines managed to lose my luggage on that trip. They have
compensated me for the contents, and have stated that lost luggage
usually turns up within a fortnight or so.
Unfortunately, I stowed the travel bug in the luggage that was lost.
I've been hoping that the airline comes up with the goods, but after
almost a month, I'm becoming less optimistic. I'll obviously purchase a
replacement [Highlands Of Scotland2].
