Arrived in Malaysia last night and went to sleep. We booked a room in a hotel at the airport as we only have today and then we fly to Borneo. KL has been really good fun though. We got the bus at about 9 this morning and took the monorail (!) to near the Petronas Towers. Then we went to the aquarium to get in the mood for some fishes. It was really good. They have a 90m underwater walkway and lots of information and examples (some in jars, but most still alive). They also had a few other beasties for fun. Some scorpions, spiders and geckos.
After amusing ourselves for a few hours we went and got some lunch - no curries - and pottered about town. the city is very cosmopolitan and feels a little western. Lots of expensive cars and shops. Then, it rained! Not that it touched the humidity, but our first rain in a while. We even had a little thunder and lightning. Unfortunately that sort of put the knockers on us going up PT or the nearby Menara Tower. Next time maybe.
On the bus back Joe met an interesting Australian. I was sat next to a very quiet Malaysian girl. And now we are back at the airport getting ready to fly over to Malaysian Borneo (Kota Kinabalu) in the morning.
See you on the other side.
Claire and Joe
