Well, here we are in Singapore, en route to Russia. It’s been a long day.
We’re staying at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, and yes, it is the most spectacular hotel in Singapore but it’s not quite our kind of place. We are on the 24th floor, and the view is gorgeous, but as soon as you step outside the peace and quiet of your room, there are people everywhere. Like Chadstone at Christmastime on steroids!
We ventured upstairs to the Skypark to check out the restaurants but abandoned it very quickly and went in search of somewhere quieter. After a whole day on the plane we were much too tired to explore very far, but eventually we found a place called High Society which was a bit more serene. The food was forgettable, which is not what you expect in Singapore, but by then we didn’t care very much.
Back up in the room with the harbour lights twinkling, it feels more relaxed. Tomorrow is another day!
