The descent into Singapore: above the thickest eiderdown of continuous cloud, bright white-tipped in the morning sun; a pristine sky above, of an iridescent blue.

Penetrating the protecting veil, we brake through in the most spectacular way, Singapore the city-country-island-state appears in its globally strategic position. A clean, ambitious, economic miracle bursts forth into the 21st Century from its humble beginnings.
