Twilight quickly yields to night at Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s capital city.
Under the shadow of the towers, Kuala Lumpur’s streets are currently plastered with election posters in Malay, Chinese, Hindi and occasionally Arabic and English. Apparently, elections do take place in countries other than the United States.
Election posters spanning cultures and languages serve as a reminder of Malaysia’s diversity – a diversity that we have taken advantage of at every meal.
We will share more in the way of photos and stories later, of course. In the meantime, we celebrate the long-awaited arrival of our visas to India. Tomorrow we’re off for Melaka, a Portuguese-influenced trading port in southern Malaysia, and then to Singapore a few days later. There, we’ll try our hand at securing some new visas to China.
From Singapore, we head to Kochi (Kerala) to kick-off our visit to India.
