Flowers and Kabobs

Activities relating to our meetings here in Singapore took us today to the Singapore Botanic Gardens, a beautiful and well-designed and maintained display of tropical plants. Within the Botanic Gardens is the National Orchid Garden.

Later we spent some time on Arab Street, the center of Singapore's Muslim community. The neighborhood is filled with shops selling all varieties of foods from various arabic-speaking countries, fabrics, carpets, crafts, gifts. At one end of the street is the largest Mosque in Singapore. Also, there is Alaturka, a Turkish restaurant where we ended our day with kabob and Turkish coffee. I'm full and awake.
