Today was the final day of “Exam Week,” after breakfast everyone set to work on the Nav Master Exam, a certification they had been working on throughout the trip. Upon completion the rest of the day was free to explore Singapore. We took the bus from Sentosa and then the MRT (Metro) throughout the city. Singapore is an amazing city, very dynamic and extremely clean. The trains are being continuously cleaned and I don’t think I saw any rubbish anywhere. Leah and I explored Chinatown in the morning, looking for a few items we hadn’t been able to source for months – success! At 6 pm we squeezed and had dinner on the boat, before watching a great slideshow put together by Leah, and “Closing Program.” It feels like we should keep going, and it will be a shame to say goodbye to such a strong crew in a couple of days.
