The "Merlion" (1/2 mer-creature, 1/2 lion). A symbol of Singapore. That's about all I know about it other than it produces a refreshing spray of water that the wind blew my way; Singapore is HOT.

The Merlion park also has views of other landmarks, including the Singapore Flyer ferriss wheel restaurant. It makes a full revolution in half an hour and each of the cars is a private dining room. Atop those three building/pillars is a casino!

A couple interesting buildings: Above, one that was built to emulate a local fruit; below, colors galore!

The iPad was a great diversion.

We found this rickshaw driver to run the kids around ... OK, it was Neil, but the kids loved it. I don't know how he had so much energy in the heat.

One of many shopping malls! This one is where we caught the 15 min. train out to the beach.
