The rest of today has involved me dragging a semi reluctant Jo first around the lighthouse, then Fort Cornwallis, then the air conditioned museum of Penang and onto a chinese temple. We've noticed today that the exchange rate for the Malaysian Ringit is at 6.25 to the pound, so for every pound we get 6.25 ringit. Therefore our breakfast (a tea, coffee, and four generous pastries) cost us 1.40MR, so that cost us.....22pence
Hopefully we will be taking a bus ride to the Botanical Gardens and Penang Hill tomorrow (Jo sighs!) and we'll probably spend a few days here in Georgetown before we make our way along the coast and around the island. The plan is to travel onto Kuala Lumpar for the end of March and grab a flight to Tokyo and visit Jo's friend Sian in Japan...all great fun!!
We heard from an English couple today that there's snow in the UK and the weather is crappy! Sorry guys...wish you were here!!Thanks to all of you who are bothering to read this blog, it's great to see so many hits, but I'm having problems emailing the guys from TDBC as well as George and Kriss at ECC, so please don't be offended because you've not had emails as the PTB (powersthatbe)won't let my emails through! Please do put on the blog any comments you'd like and let us know how much you're missing us (haha)
