Arrived in Singapore. It reminds me a lot of London, same road markings, left hand drive, buildings, double decker buses, lots of rain.

The ride from the airport to town was something special, through the east coast park by the sea. People strolling along enjoying the good weather as the sun went down, and there are hundreds of container ships anchored there, so many that when it got dark their unbroken line of lights made it look like there was another coastline across the water. The biggest surprise was seeing everyone else riding a tandem. It turned out they rent them in the park and it's not typical of Singapore.

It's so clean! They call it a 'fine city' because it's very nice, but if you do anything wrong it costs $1000 minimum. A nice change after Indonesia, where littering seemed to be compulsory ;)
