there’s no usb drive on this thing, so pictures aren’t happenin’. BUT. this is official word that the trio is now officially taking on asia.
we arrived in kuala lumpur a few hours ago, wandered the cluttered chinatown streets and after checking out a couple hostels (one above a reggae bar and the other we couldn’t figure out if the receptionist was a man or a woman – elliott: “um, was that a chick or a dude? me: “um, ya, i dunno. i’m gonna go with dude.”), this little malaysian man led us to where we’re now at. three little beds (bens already broke), rooftop view, fans on full blast.
as me and ben sit here writing, i am sweating. sweating. sweating. it’s a heat box over here.
most notable event of the day:
ben nearly got eaten by an elevator. local dude comes to the rescue. i have to stand, legs crossed, and make everyone wait so i don’t pee myself laughing.
the streets are packed with crazy motorists, random alleyways serve as garbage disposals, wafts of strange smells are, once again, the norm (“dude, it smells like nutrigrains in this joint”) and the locals never fail to remind you with their lingering stares that you are nowhere near home.
it has been almost 2 years and i missed it. sigh, the third world. i’m back.
