Tuesday 23 June Singapore

Well we travelled through the night and this time I think I slept for about 2 hours which would be the longest ever for me.Des didn't sleep at all. Taxi was pretty cheap and flow of traffic was so quiet after Dubai. We are staying at Peninsula Excelsior where we stayed last time. We arrived at 9.30am and our room was ready for us. Straight to sleep, sheer bliss. We got up and went out at about 4pm so felt somewhat refreshed but soon the humidity got too us as we walked down to the Singapore Flyer, along the river. It certainly was considerably cooler than Dubai and the wind helped also but it was very high humidity. Down to our favourite market street by the Flyer to see if our favourite stall was still there after 3 years. Yes it was! same lovely man, same lovely food and he hadn't put his prices up in 3 years. Amazing!!!!! Refreshed, we slowly walked back to the hotel which is quite a distance away so yet another big walk today. I do feel so tired still. Early night and a sleep in will be good. We had to check our next flight to Brisbane tomorrow night, on line as we had two different times on our itinerary and copies of our airline tickets. That's OK Lisa, tour has gone smoothly all the way until now.

Des has just read the Herald on line saying the temperatures in NZ are excessively low at present. Well we certainly have experienced all temperatures while we have been away, so what's a minor thing like freezing going to do to us. In Czech Republich, 2 days ago they were having their coldest mid summer in ages at about 11-13 degrees. Yesterday, in Dubai, it was 37 degrees and Singapore today is about 32 with possibly 100% humidity. We had that 3 years ago too so we knew what to expect here.

Tomorrow night we fly to Brisbane over night then a 3 Hour stop over and finally on to Auckland. It's going to be so great to be home to our family. Great to catch up with Daughter no 2 and her Husband in Dubai for the day yesterday and see them in Abu Dhabi for a week before we travelled on to UK.
