Precedent post, harsh words, upset travelers… But on this Sunday with it’s forced stay here in Singapore not all was bad. We shopped which is quite obvious in this asian haven of consumption. And then we visited the chinese garden. A very quiet and relaxing garden which even under the broiling heat did a great deal to calm our stressed out nerves. Japanese and chinese gardens each in their own way are like health food for the soul. When in Asia, I always seek them out (though Portland, Oregon has one of each and they’re both absolutely extraordinary).
