Singapore Slingshot

By Gordon Hopkins

Special Contributor

 

It was the last two days of my trip. My group headed to Singapore, where we would spend a couple of days exploring the tiny but crowded city-state before turning around and heading home. Up until this point, the trip had gone fairly smoothly. Unusual for any trip, let alone one as complex as this. We were well overdue for some drama.
