I’m really enjoying it here! Oddly enough it’s actually hotter back home in Perth right now, although here it’s much much more humid. Apart from the humidity, Singapore is a very easy city to travel around – the train system is very straightforward and frequent, and in general you feel very safe. A friend described it to me as “Sydney, but with less white people”, which makes a strange sort of sense now that I’m here.
I’ve been taking photos and notes so I can write up some posts about it all later, but here’s a few photos from tonight’s visit to the Merlion Park. These are pretty much the only photos of me that I’ve taken so far – I don’t like to hand over my DSLR, so I’m doing self-portraits MySpace style. Unfortunately at night this doesn’t work so well as it’s too dark to use a longer aperture and get both myself and the scenery in focus!
