Com'è Singapore ?
How is Singapore ?
It is a city where trees grow on the landings
Where you can find houses decorated with whipped cream
Others with gardens on the rooftops and stars on the walls
Where at the 5th floor of the National Library palm trees thrive
Dove trovi uccellini grandi e piccoli
Where you find birds big and small
A city which loves its roots , close to Europe ....
..... or a bit further from us Westeners
Where people laugh , even those who are cast in bronze
And you can find patches of forest among the skyscrapers
Here old and new go hand in hand
E' la città dove la tecnologia diventa poesia
It is the city where technology becomes poetry
And it is like being on the set of a wonderful Sci-Fi movie
You walk on clouds
Looking at the world below
La notte l'incanto si accresce e non riesci più a separare la fantasia e la realtà
At night wonder grows and you cannot divide fantasy and reality any more
Nonetheless it is a GREEN city , really green
Il verde è ovunque
Green is everywhere
Perfino vicinissimo a casa Even very very close home.
Ma soprattutto per me è la citta dell' AMICIZIA
But most of all to me it is the city of FRIENDSHIP
THANK YOU SINGAPORE
This post is dedicated to all the wonderfull persons I met during my two weeks trip to Singapore.
Old friends and new friends have made it the best time I enjoyed in the last period.
I shall never thank them enough.
