Au revoir, KL

21 Oct 2003

I had a lovely day yesterday, tooling around town with Irene, a gracious host and knowledgeable tour guide. We visited some shopping centers, Chinatown, and the public space surrounding the Petronas Towers, as well as a driving tour of dozens of other sights and attractions.

Today, I didn’t wander far, and instead more closely explored the Bukit Bintang area where I’m staying. I didn’t take a ton of pictures here, but I’ve added a few to the pics section. Tomorrow I’m off to Singapore, and I’ll post again from there when I arrive.

The true traveler is he who goes on foot, and even then, he sits down a lot of the time.
