Hi,
We arrived in Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, earlier this afternoon. Took the train from the airport about 30 minutes to "Sentral", a massive interconnected complex that includes a train station, subways, malls, and hotels. It was 90 degrees and cloudy when we got into the pool on the 30th floor. One hour later it’s raining like crazy with thunder and lightning and 81 degrees.

Lots to explore in the next 5 days before we head out to the islands and beaches of Thailand.

Batu Caves

Took an Islamic train to a Hindu temple. Unaccompanied women and girls had to ride in a special, no men, car. The cave is one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside India. A 42.7-meter (140 ft) high statue of Lord Murugan, tallest in the world, built in 2006. We're carrying trekking umbrellas, battery fans, and neck coolers. It was a double foot wash day for Jan.

Hi,
Yesterday we visited the Batu Caves, a Hindu temple inside of a limestone mountain. Those photos are on our blog.
I had to share these pics of the monkeys. If you look closely you will see a baby latched onto the mother’s chest. They hold on so tight and somehow don’t fall off when the Mom is running up and down the steps and sitting high up on the bannisters. How would you like to see the world upside down like that?
There were 2 occasions where monkeys chose me to climb onto. I screamed a very loud scream, per Lyle, until he knocked them off. I will now plan to have a monkey “whomper” (Lyle’s umbrella) with me at all times when we’re among monkeys.
They sure are cute, though...
Love to all,
Jan and Lyle
