After a 12 hour much needed sleep, we feel refreshed and ready for a late breakfast in the Hotel. Fort Canning Park is just over the road so a nice walk through there and up to thenBattle Box Museum again sounds like just the perfect thing to do this morning. It's still pretty humid but seems cooler this morning for the huge pile of stairs in the park. Oh, the Battle Box is closed till September for Renovations. Oh well we saw it 3 years ago so next thing nearby was the other Museum in the park. This was really stunning and well worth seeing especially the new exhibition about Cleopatra and relics from Pompeii. We visited Pompeii 3 years ago so the frescos from the sculptures house were so interesting for us to view.
Finally, we had our first swim and lay in the warm sun back at the hotel, since Abu Dhabi 6 weeks ago. It was never warm enough in the UK or Europe to do that. Knowing it is so cold at home, we soaked up the warmth before finishing our packing and heading to the airport.
Another killer of an overnight flight awaits us but it is only about 7 hours! Like the last one. A 3 hour wait in Brisbane airport then finally, back in good old NZ. Yay! We love you NZ! I bet we will be home for a day or two and then we will be complaining about the cold. Oh yes, that's right, we have had our share of cold in the northern hemisphere summer!
