Finally arrived in Singapore after an horrific 46 hour trip and after two whole minutes in the room Liam declared he now hates hostels and won't stay in one again. (With good reason, it is cramped sweltering and you have to put your own bedding on - Liam). The hostel is actually fine, clean, with free wifi and breakfast and we will be staying in one again...
Saudia airport was an experience, 17 hours wait on the worlds most uncomfortable chairs being stared at from all angles. It wasn't all bad though as the airline provided three meals for us free of charge. Plesant suprise. On the other hand we will never get used to squat toilets.
When we arrived in Singapore (and after a much needed shower) we went for a walk around little India where our hostel is. It is so unbelievably busy and HOT. I can't decribe how hot it is, its like walking into a sauna. The traffic is constant and the walkways are just an assault course of scooters, tables and washing machines.
There are some amazing temples littered between the chaos and an amazing place to eat on every street corner. We eventually decided on a stall in a hawker market and both had a bowl full for 7 dollars. We strolled around the streets, saw some Christmas lights and had a drink whilst deciding on our course of action for tomorrow.
It's been a manic few days and having not slept in a bed for two days we are looking forward to getting some rest before tomorrow.
