Mangroves and city park.



2/23/2016: Riding the MRT to the end of the line, I ended up in some mangroves with a boardwalk. There were many people cleaning up. After I had enough of the outdoors, I went to the mall where I learned that "Birds of Wallacea" was available in a Singapore Library. I was able to photograph all the illustrations in this out of print book for the upcoming trip to Indonesia!
