"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)


In transit:
twelve hours in Singapore
made considerably easier by taking a room in one of the airport’s three Transit Hotels.

    • Actually, I think it’s me who has the addiction! When first starting a blog maybe one should be offered a health warning: if I haven’t posted a picture, the day feels almost incomplete..

    • Singapore airport is vast, modern and efficient. Like all international hubs, its terminals are full of eateries, and shops offering duty-free luxuries, electronics, cigarettes and alcohol: a contemporary and high-tech version of souls wandering in purgatory!

      I showered, slept a few hours, ate, slept some more, then took a final shower before embarking on my next (ten hour) flight.
