What is a country, city and an island?
SINGAPORE! We had the great pleasure of going and visiting the Ferrells in Singapore for a long weekend. We were very curious about seeing what an Asian, non- third world country was like. Our curiosity was pleasantly enlightened by how Singapore is so civilized, modern and beautifully clean. We had a great time hanging out with Annika, Keith, and their two adorable kids. We went swimming, mountain biking, running, exploring the large malls and Chinatown. We toured the island of Sentosa, enjoyed good food and seeing the melting pot of Asian cultures. We were shocked at the amount of English we heard on the streets and well as the clean and friendly atmosphere of the entire country. There were times we had to remind ourselves that we were still in Asia.
