Malaysia

Yes, I arrived safely in Malaysia.
After a very long flight. Actually 4 flights - FW to Detroit, Detroit to Tokyo, Tokyo to Singapore, Singapore to Penang. Total travel time was about 34 hours!!

Penang is an island off the western coast of Malaysia.

There is a 12 hour time difference from here to home, so contacting family has been quite a challenge.
I have been very tied up with the work I was sent here to do and had not had a chance to see much of my surroundings until today. Here are some pictures I took today...

I could have just stayed at the beach all day!


Only for my 7 year old son would I hold a large python and malaysian pit vipers!!!


The butterfly garden was amazing!

Some interesting creatures we saw throughout the day!


Being in a "jungle" the flowers were beautiful!


I will be here another 2 weeks, so if I get a chance to see some other sites, I will share them with you.
