Day 26 – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The dark clouds look so ominous in the background

Last day in KL. This morning I was feeling better than the last, so I decided to take an extra hour of sleep before I started my day. I got up at 9:30 and headed to the train station to go explore the Petronas Towers. I exited KLCC station and immediately looked up and saw the two skyscrapers in front of me. I walked a little farther away to get a good view and snapped some photos before exploring KLCC park for a little bit. Time to head back. I managed to miss my connecting stop and get on the wrong train, but I finally made it back to my hotel barely in time to check-out. I was actually 15 minutes late, but they didn’t charge me. Whoo!

After checking-out of the hotel, I walked back to Restoran Kin Kin for another bowl of the delicious chili pan mee. Because I’m in Malaysia and #whynot? After lunch, I found another shopping mall on the way to KL Sentral, tried to find a way to walk to the botanical gardens and butterfly garden from the train station but was met by a huge intersection of highways. So instead, I went back to KL Sentral and ended up watching Guardians of the Galaxy to kill some time.

I caught this girl on the train sketching me, so I asked if I could take a picture. So cool!

Overall, Malaysia has been a nice change from Thailand. My brain has had to adjust from Thai baht to Malaysian ringgit. Also, everything here is so cheap. You have to try really hard to spend a lot of money. But I did it! The culture is definitely very different from anywhere else I have ever been to, but I am definitely glad I made it a part of this trip. PS, I do not have a beard.
