We are in a very wet city, warm, but very wet! It has rained with thunder and lightning everyday so far, well I guess they don't call this a rainforest for nothing!! Singapore is an amazing city - so clean! The public loo's are lovely! Seriously I want a bathroom at home as nice as some of them here!
There is a lot to see in this city, and we have mastered the underground to see it all! We went to Sentosa today by cable car (it's a island full of attractions, and Asia's most southerly point). We arrive at Sentosa then took a zip wire to the beach while a trunk took our bags down and spent the morning on the beach! What a way to travel... The beach was nice and the sea a gorgeous colour but beyond the breakwater it was rather industrial with some huge ships and a dock yard. Unfortunately our afternoon was rather rained off...
Yesterday we went to the zoo which was nice, the animals are a lot more free than most zoo's being kept in by moats rather than fences which felt nicer and some of the monkeys just have the run of the park. After a day at the zoo, and a short walk we went to the 'night safari'. After dark, everyday there is a tram ride around a separate park (effectively another zoo) and you can jump off and wander around parts. It was actually quite eerie wandering around in the dark jungle, as we couldn't really hear anyone else... We saw quite a few bats, some large cats on the prowl (not too close), rhino's and generally night creatures doing their thing. It was really good, and if anyone is coming to Singapore well worth it!
So off to Australia tomorrow, after one last trip here to the science museum. We should land in Cairns on 15th, dinner time, another big time change for the body clock. Don't know how often we will be able to blog from Oz but will do our best to update you - keep messaging us it's lovely to hear from you all!!
