Kuala Lumpur 2 - Pictures from Yesterday

This is our pretty empty Air Asia flight from Chiang Mai to Kuala Lumpur. I hope they start getting people on the plane or they'll consider cutting this flight.

The Malaysian coast line.

The bus into town from the airport.

Palm plantations along the road from the airport.
We got in at the LCC (Low Cost Carrier) airport.
(As I'm posting this I can hear the fireworks from where we were earlier
tonight at the Chinese Festival. Will post a bit on that in the next day or two.)
The bus got us into Sentral (Malaysia spelling is a lot easier to figure out than Thai) Station and then we took the monorail to the hotel. It began raining while we were on the monorail. We waited with the motorcycle drivers for about ten minutes until it was over.

This is the view from our room, pasted together with six photos, not using photoshop. The red roofed low buildings in front are the Malaysian visitors and information center, right across the street from the hotel, where I'm sitting now using their wifi. And where they had great music last night. If I find time I'll post some video.

These are the Petronas Twin towers. At one time it was the highest building in the world. Now I guess they claim it as the highest twin towers. At night it really was spectacular. The white lighting against the dark sky was pretty impressive. My pictures just don't do it justice. This is two pictures badly put together.
