We blew our budget yesterday on the city tour, purchases at Beryl’s chocolate factory (what was I thinking to take Colin there?!), and getting sucked into a touristy restaurant for dinner. Today we attempted to re-coup and spent the day wandering around the city, especially Little India. First stop, coffee (2.20 Ringgit; about 50 cents each), then a visit to the Masjid Jamek mosque. We both made dashing figures in our robes:
After working up an appetite we had a late lunch at an Indian restaurant away from the main tourist areas. Two massive plates of chicken and vegetable curries – this quantity of food might well see us through until tomorrow morning!
Back home to wait out the afternoon rain – it rains for an hour or two around 3-4pm each day, sometimes very heavily (view from our hotel room below). Good chance to get into my book (Keith Richards’ biography). I can’t quite believe yet that we have three or more months of travelling…that means time to chill out as well as time to look around – how lucky are we?
