On our way to Aceh we had to stop in Singapore to get our Indonesian visas and it gave me a chance to visit old friends, eat food I've missed and show G a bit more of the city I lived in for so many years. Our 10 day visit coincided with Deepavali so we went to little India with my good friend Guru for a personal guide to the celebration. The streets were decorated with lights, the streets were crowded with festivities and people thronged to the temple to pray. Once inside the temple the atmosphere was serene, scented with burning incense, fruits and flower offerings worshipers made to the multiple deities idolized in the Hindu culture.
