HELLO MALAYSIA!, Kuala Lumpur, from what I saw, is really developed. Skyscrapers everywhere, nicely landscaped highways, fancy buildings and not so many motorbikes.. Then again it’s 3:00am so maybe tomorrow the motorbikes will be out. I hope so. Love me some motorbikes. I left my hostel in Gili Trawangan, Indonesia at 8am to catch a boat to Bali and a taxi to the airport and arrived at my hostel in KL at 2:00am. It’s been a long day. When I got the the airport there was an additional (surprise) fee from my taxi driver which I am sure was completely a made up scam but I couldn’t be bothered to make a fuss. It was only $0.75, but it’s the principle of the matter. Especially when you average $25-$30 a day with all expenses. Upon arriving in Malaysia, I made the last bus by under 5 minutes. So lucky.. The airport is roughly an hour away (AKA an expensive taxi ride) so I was mentally prepared to sleep in the airport to wait for public transportation to start up In the morning.. but I made it! The Petrona Towers are glistening in the sky, all lit up, and half of me wants to walk over and take some photographs when there isn’t a crowd.. But I think I should get some sleep first. I’m exhausted. I came to the rooftop bar at the hostel to grab a night beer (10 Ringgit, seems expensive, I miss my Cambodian prices ). I am excited to explore this city come morning. Gooooodnighhtttt.
