Singapore Botanical Gardens
We really covered some ground, so these few pictures don't really do it justice. During the week, we went to Chinatown, Arab Street, Tekka Market in Little India a couple of times. And of course with every visit, we sampled the local cuisine. Once again, we had an incredible lunch at Eight Treasures Vegetarian Restaurant in Chinatown, including Black Pepper "Chicken" that really wasn't chicken...
Over the weekend, since we had wheels, it was mostly about what we could do with Lucy Blue, and there is plenty. We went to Tanjong Beach at Sentosa, which was blissfully uncrowded, especially amazing on a holiday weekend. We visited the Botanical Gardens, which WAS crowded, but still gorgeous. Pete, Mary and I visited the National Orchid Garden inside the the park, while Chris waited outside with Lucy (that is one of several sections where dogs aren't allowed). Later that day, we went to Bukit Brown, a large tract of undeveloped land that contains an old Singaporean cemetery and many walking trails. It was a beautiful spot with many imposing and very old headstones. Unfortunately, a highway will intersect the park in the future, so believe it or not, we saw a trailer for families to register for "exhumation", for those whose ancestor's grave sites are affected.
