Just over two weeks after arriving in Singapore, Michael and I welcomed our very first visitor – Katie Waller! Waller is a good friend of my brother’s (so a good friend of mine) and was passing through after a business trip to Hong Kong. We were able to fit a lot in to the two days she was here: Little India, the Arab Quarter, eating at a hawker center, a walk in the botanic gardens, a tour of the CBD (central business district)/Boat Quay, and a trip to the Night Safari.
Much of the itinerary was spent in the company of Ted and Sarah Martens (also friends of brother/Waller) who were in Singapore on the last leg of an around-the-world tour. They were staying with another couple of Michigan grads that knew of another Michigan grad that was in town with his girlfriend. The whole crew had a great time at Newton Circus hawker center eating local fare and singing “Hail to the Victors” at the request of the wait staff.
