Wardies in Singapore
We have been constantly surprised at how green it is in Singapore. We live in Bukit Timah which has a nature reserve. We enjoyed a very hot walk through it on New Year's Eve. Hopefully some of you got the monkey photos by email - they are very cute! One of these photos is of Hume Avenue where we live. The other is of the washing hanging on our very small balcony. There are many contradictions in Singapore.. for example cyclists don't wear helmets, you don't need a baby car seat in taxis (or buses, trains and other cars), there is litter in places, and I even saw a guy spit! However it is generally as clean and efficient as people say.. and certainly everyone is very considerate of others.
