Singapore Part 2

Connected to the Botanic Gardens is the National Orchid Garden, which requires a small entrance fee and is totally worth the price. 700 species of orchids and 2,100 hybrids, according to the guidebook. Stunning.

We had dinner by the towering Fountain of Wealth near Suntec City Mall, then waited in the taxi queue for about two hours before we made it back to the hotel (the women and children, that is). It took the guys another hour to get home. Lessons learned: Call a taxi ahead of time. Don't wait for the mall to close. Don't let the kids get so tired that they're bopping strangers in the face with helium balloons and begging to be carried. 'Nuff said.

Pretty flowers, no? Okay, okay, they're blurry, but look at all the pretty colors! I blame the camera.

Next stop, Singapore Zoo.
