Those skyscrapers beyond my fences

After staying 9 months in Singapore, my assignent from Italy was about to expire and I had the choice to move permanently to Singapore or to go back to Italy.

 

I chose to move to Singapore and to Asia.

 

It was not an easy choice though. I was thinking to the fact that all my relatives and friends were far away, and I was trying to figure out the deep reasons of why I had fallen in love with Asia. I was thinking to my future, how hard it would eventually be, starting a life from scratch in a new, different continent.

 

While I was thinking all the above, one day looking outside the place where I stayed, I noticed the stones and the fences...

 

The fences represent the border between my inside and the outside, new, modern world in which I had chosen to live. The stones, in my inside, represent the toughness of the path I have started.
