We arrived in Kuala Lumpur on March 29 for 2 nights. We were within walking distance to Chinatown so strolled through there at the height of meal time (which we did not partake in...we didn't want to chance it with Paul's food allergies).
|It was super busy and crowded...food carts and dishwashing stations galore|
|Here's the meat/seafood you pick to get grilled|

|Walking down Jalan Petaling|
On March 30 we took a quick trip to the Batu Caves.
The limestone forming the caves is said to be around 400 million years old. And it certainly smelled that way - but that may have been the chickens, roosters, monkeys, pigeons, and bats hanging out in there. Fun fact: The Golden Statue of Lord Murugan is the tallest statue of Lord Murugan in the world.
|We got a friendly tourist to help take a picture for us|
|This is the shot that everyone takes a photo of|
|Before heading up, I found some scavenging monkeys|
|This one has food on her mouth|
|Getting ready to climb the 272 steps|
|Boy, were they steep!|
|The monkeys are everywhere as you walk up and they are aggressive!|

|Making our way to the top|
|Made it to the cave where there are even more steps|
|And from the front|
Even though he couldn't reach...
|Paul still tried|

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment at the Swiss Garden Residences during our time in KL and it reminded us of the Silver Towers, our apartment in NYC. We even stayed in the South Tower!

|The decor even felt a little like the Silver Towers|
