    Singapore

    March 2 in Singapore

    Jan slept ok, but Geoff and I were awake a lot through the night. Eventually we got a few hours sleep before we went downstairs for breakfast. Showered and packed then went to the Botanical gardens. The gardens are a world heritage site. We went into the national orchid garden which was very lovely. Next stop was the flower dome at Gardens by the Bay. Just beautiful. A quick bite to eat then we headed out to the airport. A comfortable wait at the airport just chillin, walking around, some last minute shopping and some nice Vietnamese for dinner. Finally on board for our last leg of the journey.Read more

    Singapur hat sie alle...

    • Singaporesta löytyvät kaikki Aasian kulttuurit •

    ... und zwar alle asiatischen Kulturen! Es ist erstaunlich, selbst nach den bisherigen Monaten Stadtteile in Singapur zu entdecken, in der die Atmosphäre eines wieder neuen asiatischen Landes herrscht. Mit einer gleichfalls recht multikulturellen Truppe - vertreten waren Singapur, Thailand, Kanada, Philippinen und Deutschland - ging es diesmal in das Einkaufszentrum Golden Mile Complex. Hier kann man sich wie Thailand fühlen! Ein eigens thailändischer Supermarkt verkauft viele Sachen mit bekanntem Logo, aber in anderer Schrift (siehe Bilder). Hinzu kommen viele kleine Läden mit thailändischen Produkten und gastronomische Betriebe, in denen man viel Thai hört. Nebenbei waren wir auch noch im malayischen Stadtteil.Read more

    Singapur

    Matti:“Hier ist es aber laut!“

    Wir sind in Singapur. Natürlich ein riesiger Kontrast zu unseren naturnahen Wochen in Costa Rica.

    Hier ist es laut. Laut, weil immer irgendwo eine Klimaanlage läuft, weil Autos fahren, weil viele Menschen unterwegs sind und natürlich auch sprechen und weil die in so einer Lautstärke reden, dass ich mich nur wundern kann.

    Bestes Beispiel dafür ist unser Besuch im größten Aquarium der Welt, hier in Singapur.
    Es ist voll, die Menschen stehen vor den Aquarien, fotografieren sich mit der Unterwasserwelt, klopfen an die Scheiben, drängeln und sind laut. Unvorstellbar so einen Lärm im Berliner Aquarium zu erleben.

    Dann ist es warm. Tagsüber 32 Grad, nachts 27 Grad. Puh. Auf dem Dach unseres Hotels gibt es zur Freude aller einen Pool. Morgens nach dem Aufstehen (so gegen sieben) gehen wir dort als erstes eine Runde schwimmen und abends, nach unseren Stadterkundungen, kühlen wir uns dort nochmal ab.

    Mattis Schwimmflügel sind kaputt. So muss er nun schwimmen lernen. Die kurze Bahn durchs Becken schafft er schon, mit Tauchen geht es auch schon weiter. Jetzt muss er noch an der Technik arbeiten. Matti ist superstolz, dass es jeden Tag besser klappt und er nun schwimmen kann. 😀

    Terug naar huis

    November 9, 2017 in Singapore

    Mijn eerste vlucht was pas rond 18u dus ik had nog ruim de tijd om afscheid te nemen van Singapore. De zon kwam ook vollen bak afscheid nemen waardoor mijn poging om niet te zweten goed mislukte. Buiten afkoelen in koffie shops ben ik nog eens de religieuze tour opgegaan door een Taoist tempel en een moskee tee bezoeken, beide zeer de moeite en een sterk contrast in stijl. Als laatste besloot ik om in Chinatown een uurtje op terras te zitten met een archipelago summer IPA voor ik naar de luchthaven vertrok.Read more
