Thailand / 27.05.2016

The taxi driver who was taking us into town from the airport didn’t speak English. This may come as a surprise to you, but we don’t speak Thai. “Tomorrow,” he said, looking at us through the rearview mirror, when we stopped at a red light. With his hands he made a pair of guns and started “firing” them, all complete with sound effects worthy of Star Wars. His eyes came alive with anticipation. Then, he laughed and laughed.

http://clearskiescleaning.com/about/joshua/ It’s been 4 moths since I started writing this post and I’ve been having the hardest time clicking “publish”. Guess I believe that in doing so, it makes it all definite. But I’ve come to realize that in sharing it, I’m honoring my time in California and that that’s exactly what I set out to do when I started writing it in the first place. So, here it is. 
Asia, City Sightseeing, Featured, Singapore / 21.05.2016

Three or four days. That’s exactly how long people say it’s enough to stay in Singapore. It may be enough for a quick run down of all the major sights and checking them off your list one by one, but it’s definitely not enough to let this amazing city captivate you. It’s not enough to, as it says by a sculpture by Bruno Catalano in Gardens by the Bay, "take with you beautiful memories and leave a part of yourself behind."
Asia, City Sightseeing, Singapore / 16.05.2016

I admit it. I flew into Singapore with some sort of expectations. I hate doing that when visiting new places. I like to allow my senses to do the exploring from scratch, and not be biased. Forget what I read and thought and just open my senses, take it all in, and be humbled. Be changed. But with a well visited place like Singapore, it was hard not to imagine go to site something.
