The world doesn't stand still while I'm away filming - Mandy has been doing a sterling job holding the fort and getting the DVD orders away promptly. Two lengthy flights through the night take their toll and trying to re balance the body clock very quickly;y is a hard thing to manage but I arrived feeling relatively bright eyed and bushy tailed and nothing that a change of clothes and a shower couldn't sort out. I'm busy download the many hours of film I've taken and there is a whole cavernful of still photo shots to accompany the video, now as sleep beckons and I'm nowhere near dinner its going to be a struggle so to keep things simple and break you in with the Singapore bus scene here are some shots I took yesterday afternoon along Orchard Rd, the only shots that are really downtown and the vast majority are at the transport interchanges. The weather was hot and humid and by the time I was changing trains for the airport line a huge brief shower fell from the sky the only rain I'd had on the Singapore / Indonesian sector of the trip. So without further ado lets gets a feel for things.
As you can see there is still a great variety of models and colour schemes but it's the lime green that is the new standard for the government owned fleet and the buses are issued to the franchise winners. Thus the continued developing story of Singapore's bus services carries on to enthrall the traditional British type deckers with names already familiar such as Go Ahead, Tower Transit, Comfort Delgro and the rest with nearly half the services parcelled out. By tomorrow I should be getting some DVDs out.
