We Last Saw Them in New Westminster

Day 67 - There were folks we know in town today. We met these guys through mutual friends just last fall. The rather amazing thing is they live in New Westminster, about a half kilometer up the hill from where we do. In fact, this is an entry which seems appropriate to reference today. So meeting up in downtown KL seemed serendipitous.

They're in Malaysia until April too but they're based much closer to where we spent last winter. Penang is about 300 kilometers from Kuala Lumpur. We caught them as they had recent connecting flights through the airport here and were staying with relatives.

Getting Food
Lunch

They came to our studio apartment just in time for us to head to lunch. For the first time, we ate at restaurants just across the road. A number of different vendors share an area with common tables. Of course, as usual, I gravitate toward a place which sells biryani. I definitely missed that in Bali.

Before the Confluence
Tourists, Obviously.

They didn't have long but hadn't been over to the Masjid Jamek area recently. The 'River of Life' walkway along the confluence of the rivers has really improved the area making it much more of a must-see for visitors. I am glad we had the little walk there with them.
