An occasional blog about natural history, travel, books and writing ... and anything else that catches my attention.
Thanks for the plug. :)It emerged from a few weekends spent on Singapore's offshore islands, still a world apart from the city across the water. But already the authorities are eyeing them for 'development'.
Budak,You captured well, my own disorientation ... no not disorientation, a mix of sensory overload in some things and losses in others ... and a hurriedness in EVERYthing ... that made no sense, when I moved from an island in the Great Australian Bight, to the Adelaide Hills as a 12 year old.Prior to the couple of years' life on the island I had lived on the West Coast of SA; not populous or hilly or "fast"luhgjmfo.:)
I remember seeing animals in the mangroves in Singapore that I'd never seen in Australia. First a bockadam (mangrove snake) and then a horseshoe crab. I was stunned.
Attenborough was down at the mangroves here last year to film the snakes and reptiles for his swansong "Life in Cold Blood." The bockadams should be in it :)
