Last post in Asia from The Lion City

It’s just a few hours before I leave Singapore. Caught the overnight train here and spent most of the morning looking for somewhere to store my big backpack!

This afternoon I escaped the heat and humidity by venturing underground to the secret British bunker from World War II. All in all very interesting. Our Singaporian guide was actually around during the Japanese occupation from 1942-45 and came out with some pretty horrific stories of torture and suffering.

There was a collective relief amongst us tourists that there were no Japanese present as this guy certainly had n’t forgiven or forgot. I guess without having gone through this nightmare it is hard to be judgemental over people’s attitudes, however extreme.

Well I am logging off now for the last time in Asia, but don’t forget that I will still be updating this blog when I am back in the UK and venturing around continental Europe and Africa!
