Ah Malaysia I like you! I’m here for just 4 nights and 5 days, with a 6kg bag (no camera), 2 changes of clothes and a crappy pair of flip flops. This is traveling light! $11 gets you a wonderful 8 hour train journey. After crossing the Strait of Malacca, I am in Penang, reveling and luxuriating in our colonial heritage. There’s a lot of blue paint here. iLove.

Malaysia is rounded where Thailand is edgy; relaxed where Singapore is business; savvy where Indonesia is lazy. And way more prosperous than I expected = quick, concrete ugly architecture.

It seems to me, that whenever humans have been, in modern times, we’ve made a mess. But the Old stuff? I’m certainly getting the delicious architectural fix I came here for.

The Internet is lightening fast. Thank God, Buddha, Allah and Saraswati…
