Ken and Mary's apartment is on the luxury side of things - such glossy floors!
And they have a pool/patio-
Little cafe "The Kitchen Project" poolside.
Coconut water. I've had coconut water from the coconut, but never with the membrane preserved... kind of weird.
Our big trip to today was to the Batu Caves, Hindu temples built into limestone caverns.
The world's tallest statue of Lord Murugan was under construction.
Many steps up to the caves.
Workman walking down..
....workman still walking down.
Inside the cavern.
The inner inner cavern is open to the sky.
There's a little temple in that inner cavern.
Typical(?) temple tower.
The temple, the greenery, the cavern walls...
Batu Cave rooster strut.
They also had monkeys.
The monkeys were pretty aggressive and would grab bags out of folks hands if they looked like they might have food.
Monkey silhouette, heading out.
Monkey silhouette with birds.

Heading back down.
Silver lining to Lord Murugan under construction was some workman up there to give a sense of scale.
Back in KL. - since it was clear Melissa and I decided to go up the KL Tower.
This was in the lobby of the KL Tower.
View from atop the KL Tower, this is looking at the connected towers of the Verticas residence where my cousins live.
Nice clouds in this one.
The KL Tower had a "Sky Box" with a glass floor you could walk out on.
You know, I'm as skinny as I've ever been but when my shirt puffs out I look bad. Also weirdly foreshortened.
Melissa looks great though. Believe it or not she's walking on air.
Another KL Tower attraction was a little zoo, we skipped it but the parrots were by the entrance.
The KL Tower's base had numerous extra attractions including the Upsidedown House.
The KL Tower reflected in a bank. With a camel... I've been told the camel has interesting animations or at least lights at night.
The KL Tower with a puffy cloud. Ken pointed out later it looks like it's ready for blast off.
Ruined old building, looking even more than its 80 years.
When and Why Nationalism Beats Globalism
. I'd prefer to be a citizen of the world myself, but we need to understand people who put nation over humanity. And sometimes there's something to be said for the view in the United States, there are many things we get right, and paths to improvement. Unfortunately the white-america first got this know-nothing elected.
