Far from the Maddening Crowd

Singapore can be quite a surprising place. Many foreigners think of Singapore as an urban jungle. But there are actually many little areas in Singapore that have jungle of the green leafy variety. MacRitchie Reservoir is one of them.

Here are some photos taken during a New Year's Eve morning spent meandering along the boardwalks of MacRitchie. It is so peaceful in there, with only the rustling of leaves and the calls of the animals, that it didn't surprise us when we came across a man meditating by a bench about half an hour into our walk. Wandering around in there made me forget all about the urban jungle just minutes away.
