Show trip route
We got back on the subway to go further toward the port. Our goal was Long's Bar at the "colonial jewel" Raffles Hotel, (1887) the hotel where Carmen and her family stayed when they would be in the city. Carmen's father worked for Chevron in an oil camp in the jungle. They would come back to the US through Singapore during the 1950's
We returned to our hotel area and I went straight for a foot massage. Glorious. Sore feet, shin splints but the 'ole knees are holding up great thanks to cortisone shots before I left home. Note to self - get in shape before beginning the next trip!
Observations of Singapore: Young, very classy, high-heels, beautiful black shiny hair, everyone talking on a cell phone, polite older men giving subway seats up for women, one little fluffy dog, clean streets, a multitude of languages, Starbucks on every corner, orchids, the songs of birds, warm rain bursts, saris, adorable babies, little black dresses that truly are little, British and Aussie accents, no beggars or street musicians, building cranes everywhere, no visible police, no sirens, restaurant menus that go on for pages, beauty and stimulation to match anyone's preference.
