Towns and cities have a long history, although opinions vary on which ancient settlement are truly cities

Towns and cities have a long history, although opinions vary on which ancient settlement are truly cities. The benefits of dense settlement included reduced transport costs, exchange of ideas, sharing of natural resources, large local markets, and in some cases amenities such as running water and sewage disposal. Possible costs would include higher rate of crime, higher mortality rates, higher cost of living, worse pollution, traffic and high commuting times.

When Susan Orlean fishes for a story, she reels in a hidden world. And so the latest delightful trawl from the author of Rin Tin Tin and The Orchid Thief starts with the tale of the 1986 fire that damaged or destroyed 700,000 books in the Los Angeles Central Library. But The Library Book pans out quickly to the fractious, eccentric history of the institution and then, almost inevitably, a reflection on the past, present, and future of libraries in America. In THE LIBRARY BOOK she has taken on-no spoiler here-the topic of libraries.

Since I'll be visiting Singapore soon I thought it would be a good to try and not make the same mistake again. I am not much of a museum person either, but if that's the best option, then I am comfortable with that. The Singapore City Gallery near Maxwell Road FoodCentre is very good.
