So begins the Kyoto 2017 Trip Chronicles.
Day 1 in Kyoto – we headed out early in the morning (as early as we could manage, given that we had just checked into our Airbnb at 12 midnight) to the famous Fushimi Inari shrine and found ourselves in the midst of tons of school children (on a Sunday morning!).
Apart from the famous and iconic orange tori gates which we managed to get some people-less shots of, there were other interesting sights on the way up and down Mt Inari too.
New (ok, not-so-new anymore) gem of a place for my weekly doses of solitude and quiet.
After lunch at Love Pal Cafe, on to Round 2 – SAM@8Q.
At the Singapore Art Museum.
When you combine deep, thought-provoking installations, photography and an hour and a half of walking around, you naturally end up with very hungry people.
On our second (and last) morning there, we planned to wake up at 5.30AM to catch the sunrise.
So Mum’s alarm rang at 5.30AM, home time.
Which translated to 4.30AM in Bintan.
By the time I figured out why the sky was not getting any brighter by the minute, it was around 4.45AM.
Laughing, we decided to use the extra time to shower and freshen up anyway.
Good story for memories ;p
A quick one with the mum in December 🙂
So comforting to know that we still have peaceful corners in our midst.
Maths, Science, Music, Art.
The world inter-is. Man created the divisions.
