Crossing the border between Singapore and Malaysia in Johor

Unfortunately my camera died after these shots, but we crossed the border between Singapore and Malaysia via the causeway that was built long ago by Sub's grandfather (under Japanese occupation), and entered into a quite ordered border crossing, certainly putting the Mexican-US border to shame.
Perfectly symmetrical on both sides, i.e., in both directions, actually quite disorienting that way, as the differences between Singapore and Malaysia are huge, just across the bridge. We took a bus to the border crossing, had to go through immigration and customs both ways, and then had to change buses on the other side, although we were on Singapore bus system buses throughout.

There were many buses of little children who go to school in Singapore and return home to Malaysia at the end of the day, along with many workers. The school buses below transport the children.
