Photographer's Note

One month ago, when Kasia was returning home from Manila, I was on my trip from Denpasar in Bali to Poland. I planned to go to the Philippines, I had a ticket from Singapore to Manila for 21st March. Quite strange, that wrote that Manila was closed but most of the flights were still active. It was important for me because if the flight was cancelled I could ask for the refund. But my flight was not suspended.
Although my trip was long - 3+7+8 hours of flight, then 1000 km by car to the Polish border and finally 6 hours by train, I didn't find it especially hard. a bit dramatic but compared to what I read later about the tourists trapped, it was easy and even funny.
We had a few hours break in Changi Airport. Gert says that all airports are boring and the same. Well, I love airports and for sure there is no other airport so fascinating as Changi.

The Rain Vortex is an indoor waterfall in Jewel Changi Airport, Singapore which was opened on 17 April 2019. It is the world's largest indoor waterfall at 40 metres in height and surrounded by a four-storey terraced forest.

The waterfall and Jewel complex was designed by Moshe Safdie.Jewel Changi Airport was conceptualised to be a tourist attraction at the airport itself as well as a life
The Rain Vortex spans the height of seven storeys. The roof of the waterfall pumps 500,000 liters of rainwater. The entire waterfall falls free flow from the roof, but once it reaches the ground level, there is a monolithic acrylic waterwall to prevent it from splashing over in the basement level.

Here the lowest part of the waterfall.
Stay safe, have healthy second day of Easter.
