There are two off days between the WSC and Causeway, so Michael Tang--the director and organizer of the Causeway Challenge--organized a free tour of Johor for us Scrabble players today. In addition to seeing a couple of the historic sites in Johor Bahru, we also went to the southernmost point in mainland Asia, part of a Malaysian national park full of monkeys, molluscs, and mudskippers. The tour wasn't anything spectacular, but it was better than I expected: no stops at trinket shops to try to sell us baubles.
