Photo Adventures with Curiosity and Learning

Sept 26, 2008:Singapore to Tangjung Pinang

It all started when I realized that I could pretend that Friday (Sep 26) was actually Hari Raya (Oct 1) and then pretend that Oct 1 was a work day. So off I went for a snorkel and spider weekent.

Here is the usual trip: MRT to Tanah Merah, Bus 35 to Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal, Penguin Falcon 3 to Tanjung Pinang and Bintan Agro Beach Staff to my weekend escape

Along the way I took some photos with the GPS connected. I was able to plot these with Google maps to see exactly where the photos were taken. A sailboat
