We’ve arrived! This is home for the next two years or more. We had been told earlier in the summer that it wasn’t complete, but it was ready two days before we arrived – there’s a building site at the back and the next set of homes is still under construction. It’s very smart and has three bedrooms, so there’s plenty of space for visitors. It’s also reminiscent of Landridge, where we lived in Singapore.
It’s not just our home that’s similar to Singapore – the temperatures are in the 30s and it’s very humid. The vegetation is lush and tropical (lots of palm trees, and we saw pineapple plants on the way to the supermarket today), there are cicadas and mosquitos, and familiar bird calls.
