rollerblading East Coast Park

My last Sunday in Singapore I finally managed to go rollerblading in East Coast Park with all my sportive friends! :)

McDonalds Skate Through - unfortunately I am not a big fan of McD...

one more time Singapore madness at Sentosa

Sentosa is an artificial island in from of Singapore and absolutely NOTHING on this island is found to be truly "natural". Singaporeans believe, that you can build your own "nature trail", forests and beaches. Well maybe "nature" is overrated anyway... or not?

First stop: (another) Merlion statue. The symbol of Singapore, half lion, half mermaid...

Second: butterfly park with tons of colorful species and smart parrots:

yes, they started fighting about the food and I was scared for life... ;)

the situation calmed down...

Third: Sentosa Luge

And last: a sunset at the beach...

Unfortunately even the nicest days come to an end at one point...

22nd of January - enjoying Singapore at night one more time...

Merry Christmas and very happy holidays from Mumbai! For about one month in total Nisim and me are backpacking South India. What an interesting, colorful and very diverse country! We started in Trivandrum, took a bus to Cochin, a train to Madurai to see the the huge ancient temple complex, another overnight train to Bangalore (which has at least a few nice corners), a bus to Mysore for the beautiful Palace, the most horrifying bus ride to Hampi where we got stock with the beautiful ancient ruins and amazing landscape for six days and last but not least a sleeper bus up to Mumbai where we celebrated Christmas! Tomorrow morning we are off to Goa for New Years Eve, another scenic train ride!! But see yourself and check out a very very reduced selection of the most breathtaking pictures on my Picasa Web Album! (If you click onto the slideshow you will be redirected to the album)

We will return to Singapore on the 5th of January and I will be back in Germany in the end of January. Happy Holidays and a very Happy New Year!
