I have had a most rare vision - past the wit of this man to say precisely what it was, but I will try. I went to Singapore thinking I would find a city - the “concrete jungle” as the tired metaphor goes. But Singapore also has a fair amount of actual jungle. The hot and humid climate certainly goes for the jungular. Many of the buildings around town have greenery climbing up their walls. The parks - and particularly the city’s impressive botanic gardens - are home to some spectacular sylvan arabesques.
