Journal Entry:
Woke up this morning - not raining but very grey. In the afternoon the sun actually peaked through for a while - very hot and steamy. I walked the entire length of Orchard Road looking at shops and parks, but mostly just looking. Saw The World is not Enough the new 007 movie - entertaining if a little predictable. Took Singapore's subway, SMRT, back to the hotel. First new subway system in a year and a half! Not to exciting, though the stations felt more like an office reception area than public transport. I'm starting to adjust to Singapore, it doesn't seem quite so sinister. It is a clean city, but there is the occasional liter, people jay walk and argue with each other - it is underneath a city of people.
