Thursday 8 Mar
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Tallest, largest, fastest, smallest...

We behaved like super duper tourists again for our second day in KL and did the colonial district walking tour, the Lake Gardens, an orchid nursery and the world's largest covered bird park.

It seems there are lots of tallest, largest, fastest, smallest things here in Malaysia - in fact sitting here in Langkawi writing this we are actually staying near the largest swimming pool in the whole of Malaysia. Thought that would impress you Wink

The bird park was mostly really lovely with many of the 2000 (160 species) birds flying 'free' (that's what they tell them at least) in a massive series of netted aviaries. We saw eagles being fed and were reminded of home by the strutting peacocks, ostriches and guinea fowl. Andrew reminisced over the time his mother used to take pot shots at the poor things in his garden (guinea fowl that is, not ostriches). And now we felt bad about viewing the poor things all the way from home. The zoo syndrome again.

Although at least in Malaysia they are safe from Jill!
