A Glimpse of Singapore.................


The Airbus 380 is a huge plane, the largest flying the skies................very nice ride and we landed gently, quietly, softy at Changi airport. An unexpected and interesting plus to the usual 'flight path' map on the seatback screen, was the webcam mounted on the tail giving us views of take off, landing......and, while in daylight, the very long 13 hours between!  


My image of the famous Marina Sands Bay resort - taken from the taxi as we whizzed along on our way to our intown hotel.

 (Window) shopping on Orchard Road where mall after mall contained every designer shop imaginable.........and required a fat billfold!


 French patisserie with a cute macarons display.

OK, no more time to chat, our ship awaits and we'll be boarding this afternoon. Singapore is an amazing place and I wish we had a lot more time to explore.
