After almost four weeks in this city, we’re ready to walk barefoot on a beach again soon.
Earlier this week we’ve had some great nature experiences in or close to the city.
The Botanic garden was such a positive surprise, close to the city center and still a wonderful oasis to discover and get some real nature feeling.
Ponds, a small rainforest, fish, birds and paths for walking and accesable for wheel chairs and strollers.
We found a few flowers in this huge plantation of Singapore’s national flower, a type of orchid.
Another fun surprise were the turtles!
All of this is free and everything is so well kept.
There are several different parts of the garden and this time we skipped the orchid garden because of the heat in the middle of the day.
But we did stroll through the rainforest and were amazed by the huge trees.
Yesterday Wivan and our friend Miss C took a 10 K walk in the MacRitchie Reservoir in the morning, together with lots of other people. It was warm, sunny and nice. And again, a great dose of green leaves and water to recharge the batteries after lots of city life.
We saw many, many monkeys along the paths.
Later today we’re heading out to the airport, and then fly via Kuala Lumpur to Colombo in Sri Lanka.
Looking forward to waking up close to the beach tomorrow morning!
