Once I arrived into town, we relaxed for a bit and we went out close to home to get some local eats. We spent the next few days cruising around to different parts of town, all the while sampling a variety of local dishes. We made it down to Chinatown and ate a huge feast down in the 'old' red light district. My first time eating stingray. Not bad. We were able to check out the Batu Caves, a series of caves and cave temples about 10 km outside of KL and is a sacred place for Hindus. I took a long run (i got lost) around the lake in Putrajaya, where I was able to see the largest mosque in Malaysia, one of the royal palaces, and the parliament building. I experienced the all day traffic jam that is downtown KL and the sub arctic temperatures of the ubiquitous mega malls.
Tomorrow morning, we are off to visit a few of the 17,000 islands in Indonesia. We will start in Lombok, and the word on the street is that it is paradise....
