Crystal Serenity begins the 4th segment of the World Cruise called “Temples and Safaris”. We said good-bye for now to some of our friends and hello to others who joined the ship today in Singapore.
We are staying in Singapore for 3 full days, so there is time for more exploration. Could these birds be wondering where we are going?
Once again, we were so impressed by an excellent transportation system that we took the subway/train for a long ride out to a place called Jurong where there is a Bird Park. We expected we might have gone into the “countryside”, but ended up in a big mall, passing miles and miles of high-rises!
We didn’t stay long because we had an afternoon Escort commitment back at the ship. Crystal offers guests on each World Cruise segment an opportunity to volunteer in some public service way in different countries. This afternoon we were to be part of a literacy program for developmentally challenged children.
Our small group traveled in a van to the school, of which we have no pictures! Taking pictures didn’t seem to be appropriate, and we were too busy to even think of it. Luckily, Ed thought to bring his guitar, which was a great help.
So how about we show you some pictures of how to dry your laundry in Singapore?
