We have been in Sarawak, on the island of Borneo, for a few weeks and now head to Singapore for a meeting of the International Palm Society. What a contrast from the wilds of Borneo to one of the most modern and spectacular tropical cities of the world. Much of Singapore is squeaky clean with immaculate landscaping. Almost as though Disney had a hand in the planning. Still there are old historic parts of this island city and many beautiful gardens. Being on the equator the weather is much more hot and humid than we are used to in Hawaii. The most noticeable difference from other tropical cities is that there are no homeless, no graffiti, no trash and the city has very strict regulations to keep it that way.
