Singapore and order: first impressions

Three things strike you when you get to Singapore: the green, security and order. If you think you’ll find the same mess as in China you are completely wrong. It’s nothing like that. Every detail is carefully looked after. Flower-beds and parks are cleaned nearly every day. Pavements are neat and so is every building. Even the underground is clean and you feel you can sit down without worrying about grease and dirt or a bad smell (I really can’t say the same about Milan…).

Arriving in Singapore

I’ve been in Singapore for over a month and I thought I’d share some comments on this incredible city. Please note that I didn’t have the time to get ready for this experience seeing as I only had a week to get everything up and running with lots to do before leaving Italy. So I will post some titbits as I come across them.
