so, in case you didn't know.. singapore is a REALLY new city in the whole scheme of things. honestly, in the mid-1900s (i think) the city planners destroyed most of the classic architecture to make way for "modern" buildings... sky scrapers, high rises, the MRT, etc. boone and i went on an adventure slash treasure hunt to find some of the older styled buildings.. and we FOUND some in what's called the Arab Quarter. beautiful, right?
and here's the view outside carrie and scott's bedroom into the alley... their house is so open like a tropical townhouse ought to be. the best part for the girls is the alley just behind the courtyards.
here's the alley...it's just PERFECT for playing and riding bikes.
