Was very sad to have left Cambodia, but the journey continues! Josie, our amazing host, picked us up from the airport yesterday and whisked us away on the many highways leading to KL. I don't think one can find a greater contrast to Cambodia than Malaysia. It's super-clean, modern, efficient and easy. And yet, my first impressions are that it is a bit same-same. The same stores line the same air-conditioned malls. You could be anywhere - it doesn't really feel like I'm in Asia...
...until I hear the Imam's calls to prayer! We went to the Lake Gardens to see the Bird Park. I also took the time to visit the Islamic Art Museum of Malaysia. Spent 2 hours sketching embroidery patterns. They have an amazing collection of Islamic art from all over the world. It's a real gem of a museum.
