Back to Istanbul

It turns out that my China visa won’t be ready in time for the current trip.

I’ll therefore be returning from Singapore to Istanbul today.

Although disappointed that I won’t get to see Beijing, I really enjoyed Singapore. The people are very kind and respectful, a characteristic that likely extends to other Far Eastern cultures. In addition, the small city-state has a somewhat unexpectedly large tech scene.

Finally, the wide range of hole in the wall restaurants serving spicy soups and curries is a real treat. I look forward to going back, hopefully on a visit where I’m also able to see Beijing.
