Thank you so much Ravindra for thinking of me during your trip to Singapore!
The back of the card says "Impressive Postcards" and this is really true....
He went there for the F1 night race! Because we (my hushband and I) are also F1 fans we watched it on TV! We where lucky due to the time difference we could see it during the day...:-)We are 6 hours behind Singapore time so we could follow it in the afternoon!
