a view over KL from Merdeka sq
First the news. I was kind of bored there. Kuala Lumpur didn't impress me much. I spent 3 days there but it was more than enough. Probably, I've seen enough of Malaysia and KL didn't provide any value added. I did some walks around the town, firstly around the "historical" quarter (max 100-200y old) and Merdeka square which is basically a pitch with a huge flagpole where the British used to play cricket not even 60 years ago....Of course, I visited, well I stayed in, Chinatown which is now turned into a fake-products market. Another walk I did took me along Lake Gardens which was quite nice. In the morning I visited a new National Mosque which wouldn't make me a proud Muslim if I was one.....but then I went to Islamic Art Museum that, thanks God, saved my day and reputation of KL.
Central market
..Did you know Taj Mahal in India is an example of Islamic architecture???? I had no idea...:-) Then I wanted to visit Birds Park but the ticket was quite expensive for my average interest in birds. Instead I went to an Orchid Garden...Later in the evening I met Janie and Suzie from England who I had met in Laos some time ago...The very last day I walked from Chinatown toward nothing else but mighty Petronas Towers......And I admit it's a piece of fine architecture and I liked it a lot, had to take pictures during both day and night....Well, I think the whole area around KLCC (Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre) with its park and fountains is very nicely designed and it was a pleasure to my Sunday afternoon by strolling around....

Photos will follow soon...
