Greetings from Singapore

We have been here for 2 days .... beautiful clean place. I had this trip planned before I found out about the transfer to Germany.. so, I kept the reservations--- even though I DID NOT HAVE TIME TO SPEND 7 days away from my 'errands and packing stuff'...

It's been nice to just get away- my trip to Vietnam and Cambodia in April and this trip is the first time that I've gone anywhere on vacation in 4 years.

Here are some first impressions... (sorry, can't add any photos right now):

I'm using a coin operated computer in the hotel lobby.. the first time that I've ever seen a coin operated computer too.

English signs, English speakers, etc.. everywhere

Beautifully landscaped and I mean the entire city...

It has one of the most beautiful harbors that I've ever seen

The zoo that we went to today was the best zoo that I've ever seen in a foreign country.

They drive on the 'other side' of the road... left-over from being under British rule

We had 'high tea' at Raffles Hotel yesterday... that was so funny... that I'll have to go into more detail with some photos at a later date... let's just say... our waiter will remember us... lol

Don't forget to post comments.. to enter the contest.. to any of the blogs.. (after the contest was announced) for more details.

Seacrest out... (oh, wait.. that should be: iwouldratherbeknitting out...)
