            Back in Singapore for a week...   As you may or may not know, Singapore had one of the worst air quality this past week.  It came close to that of Beijing, if that tells you anything.  By the time we arrived,  most of it had cleared already, but you could still feel it in your eyes and a bit of burning sensation in your lungs.  Singapore also lacked the rain to help clear some of it our of the air.  What was the pollution?   Indonesia's deforestation of Palm trees.  It is done every year, but this year, the smoke created by the oil in those trees lingered longer.   I went to the port to take some pictures and you can see still some of the haze in the distance: 






Before we left for Sydney and New Zealand, Andre and I went to a newly opened River Safari...  it was advertised differently than what we actually experienced, but one area was pretty neat.... the cutest little monkeys would jump around freely.... right before your feet :













           Now I am done catching up with you fine people.  I am off now to the Botanical Gardens... high tech and ingenuity awaits me.  I shall share when I get back ;-)

  2. Thank you for sharing your travels with us, and for transporting us along with you to all of these marvelous, wonderful places. I love to see your smile, that look of in your eye that you are seeing so many lovely things - your hunger and sense of adventure are being fed, and that the wanderlust inside you is being allowed to roam free. You look happy and refreshed to be out and about... a world away, yet you bring it to us in such a clear and present way, ALMOST as if we are with you. Thank you again... so much for taking us along. I miss you.
