Singapore is the homeland of several interesting Amicus colleagues. It is also on the way from Darwin to Iceland, so stopping by for a quick visit was easy. Very easy. All signs are in English and Chinese and Malay and Tamil, so we could read. English is everyone’s common language, so we could speak easily to locals. There are many hawkers food courts and quirky vegetarian restaurants so the food was tasty, cheap and delicious (except for the durian). Lush tropical gardens are everywhere, cultural diversity is enshrined and Singapore is a clean, wealthy, modern country. We arrived for National Day Celebrations, so there were lots of exciting celebrations to enjoy. Caroline and Kevin were generous hosts – allowing us to visit a school, their home and a fabulous vegetarian restaurant. A fleeting visit, but informative. I enjoyed visiting Singapore.
