Malaysia

This lady made the sweetest smoothies

And this guy tried to sell us fish that looked like it was four weeks old, but did have some good chicken

We traveled this morning after staying up late last night. The flight from KL left at 7:30 and only took an hour. The captain had the crew pick us up and take us to a hotel lounge to hang out while they're preparing the boat for our arrival. The wave forecasts look great and everyone is really excited.
Padang is really something special. As I'm writing this, we're sitting outside on the patio overlooking the harbor. Indonesia is a mainly Muslim country and it's now noon. They're playing the prayer music really, really loud, but most of the people we approached today have been really genuine gracious people. No more blogging for another 12 days....

Malaysia Day 2

Our hotel, the Concorde at night...

The Petronas Towers

There's even McDonalds here and they deliver via moped.

Iguana at the top of the Batu Caves stairs.

Statue at the Batu Caves

More status at the caves

They let me hold a giant yellow albino ball python after we walked up 287 stairs to the top of the Batu Caves

Monkeys were everywhere and friendly too..
The main statue at the Batu Caves

High speed moped run that put the NASCAR skills to use.

Pretty tired from a long day walking around the city and seeing the sights, so the commentery is pretty short tonight. I'll try to update sometime again before we leave.

That's all for tonight...
