Thirty days hath highs of 34°

The lows were  25°.  If you still use the British (now abandoned) System, the daily high was 93° and a little more, and a low of 77°. A month in Malaysia with a long weekend in Jakarta with no variation in temperatures. We stayed in the heart of Kuala Lumpur near Masjid India (Indian Mosque), not the real Little India of Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur, but pretty close.  I could bear the heat so enjoyed walking all over the city. I used to work here. In those days, I was driven by many interesting locations. This is the first time to really explore on foot.  Except for the oppressive heat, Kuala Lumpur has become a very walkable city.

I have lots of photos of the Petronas Twin Towers and the Kuala Lumpur Tower. I like this one from the Thean Hou Temple:

Here are three more:

Lots of good eating:

In Jakarta, we walked all over Old Town and China Town contrasting the traditional with the modern.  My photos fail to capture this essence.  For me having seen the whole humbly-jumbly cacophony, the photos remind me of what is not shown, not captured.
