Hi from Kuala Lumpur

Yesterday we spent most of the day cruising over the Pacific Ocean in comfy Malaysian Air planes. The flights (one to Taipei and the other to Kuala Lumpur) were nearly empty. We grabbed mid-section rows for ourselves and stretched out like goddess-queens. We were offered tasty food and drinks from servers from both aisles and gorged and slept and gorged some more.

Arrived in Kuala Lumpur about 4 am this morning. Malaysia is celebrating its 50th year of independence this years...and its a very spiffy place. The airport is ultra modern and the hotel where the airlines have put us up for the today is a tropical resort. We'll head out to visit the tallest building in the world in the city center in a little while and then board our evening flight to Delhi.
