Flag of Singapore  ,
Thursday, November 15, 2007

First visit to an internet cafe so fingers crossed . Had a good flight and managed some sleep even though one chap decided that behind our seat was the best place to try to stop his baby screaming. So relatively little jet lag and so we've had two full days. Weren't really prepared for the heat and humidity. Most buildings and and hotel air conditioned and it really hits you when you go out into street but we are coping.

So abandoned our usual policy of walking everywhere and have taken the wonderful tube all over the place. Clean graffiti free efficient cheap (50p across town.)and easy to use  Emma even managed to help out a couple of confused American tourists. Done the waterfront lots of impressive high rise buildings. Also Chinatown the Botanical Gardens and Cable Car.

Plenty of places to eat had dinner outside yards from river with good views of lit up highrise skyline. Most things not too expensive (but beer nearly 6 pounds a pint!)

Will update when can.      Rob

Singapore has been everything I expected - hot, humid, clean, cosmopolitian and neon. The weirdest thing is seeing the Xmas decorations everywhere and hearing the Xmas tunes when it is 85 degrees outside. There are so many shopping malls, I wouldn't know where to start even if I had the funds or the space in the suitcase.

Packed in more than I thought we would despite the heat and jetlag and looking forward to getting to Perth now.

Off to Raffles now for afternoon tea - a civilised hour or two.  Emma x
