Where I stayed
Anyway, spent the night in BK then got the 23 hour train to Butterworth in Malaysia. You just sleep SOOOO WELL on Thai trains. :( we felt great as we went through immigration at 9.30 the next morning. If they ever need an excuse to hassle dodgy looking foreigers at immigration, just stick them on a sleeper train the day before. You absolutely WILL look like crap with a slightly nervous tremor the next morning. "anything in your bags miss?' "errr. no. er....clothes!" . "only clothes?" .."er yes!" (looks slightly unconvinced). then wanders off looking flushed and confused. Now im nornally pretty good at crossings, but i wouldnt have been suprised if he'd insisted on inspecting every pair of dirty pants in my filthy bag, looking for incriminating powder!.
In Butterworth we managed to get on a bus within half an hour headed for KL. Only another 5 hours of boredom :( We arrived stinking and dishevelled at 7.30 pm and were greeted by a tout. We couldnt be arsed to look around so followed him to his Guesthouse and checked in. Its not too bad, lets just say weve seen a lot worse! Though the bed may be the saggiest Ive ever slept in. You need to be pretty personal with the person your sharing with before you go to sleep, cos your gona be pretty damn personal by the time you wake up! Fortunately Adam and I are still speaking and it wasnt such an issue for us :)
So here we are back in lovely Kuala Lumpur! We like this place! :) Its clean, the traffic isnt so chaotic and the people are generally friendly and mostly leave you alone to get on with your business. A whole day to kill in KL today and what did we do??? NOWT! :) We had a sleepy morning then staggered out to the Mcdonalds at 3'ish. Now were back at the GH killing time before we go back to sleep :)The flight to Bali is at 5pm tomorrow. So, If KL is anything like Bangkok, we'll have to go to the airport about midnight tonight! NO, its not that bad really, and the traffic here isnt so congested. If we get the train at 2ish we should be OK. I hope...
