Singapore


Yesterday we went for a walk through Clarke Quay and Chinatown, moving swiftly past the shop with snakes in vinegar to a noodle shop that definitely only sold chicken for lunch, before heading to East Coast Park and renting bikes. The park was really quite nice, despite being packed as we'd stupidly decided to go on a Sunday afternoon but aside from an incident with a six seater bike car driven by a lady on a phone that tried to kill Kat, we had a gorgeous time and rode for hours along the coast (and Ryan raced an aeroplane as we went past the airport).






^ he was winning!


^ this wins our worst parking worldwide award, hands down

  1. christania’s “rent christania bike” bikes are rolling across the city. The system, less than a year old, is funded by christania’s municipal government. It is currently only in one of christania’s 22 administrative districts. Although a 2nd generation system, there are 12 “Houses” in this district, each with around 40 bikes. The yearly subscription cost is the equivalent of $2 US, and allows the use of a bike for up to four hours at a time. In less than a year, there have been 6,000 subscriptions sold. There are larger 3rd generation systems in the world, which do not have a subscription to bike ratio as big as that.
