Fun complete in Kuala Lumpur

After a busy, fun, and exciting week in Kuala Lumpur, I’m finally finding some time to blog about it as I kill 7 hours in Singapore airport in the middle of the night waiting for my connection home. From here I go Hong Kong, San Fran, and home. About 36 hours total transit time. Add a 12 hour time difference jet lag to that and I’m thinking I won’t be a very pleasant person come Sunday evening when I get home.

I got into KL 8 days ago and started the trip with a fantastic excursion to a Malaysian Elephant sanctuary where I spent the day with Tim, Kim, Richard, and Goksin amongst the elephants, getting to help feed them, bathe them in the river, ride them, and help take care of a sick baby elephant. Then a hike into the rain forest to an isolated native village.

Then the next day we went to the Batu caves and a Buddhist temple:

After that I finally had to get to work and do some sessions for TechEd. One on Wed, Two Thu, and one Friday. The fun didn’t stop though, with evening excursions into town sampling the food and malls. The picture below was some food we got in an alleyway kitchen that was pretty scary to look at but the food was very good and cheap. A big group of us were taken there by a couple of the conference organizer young ladies.

Now it is time to get back to real work!!
