Although I think we were both looking forward to the Indonesia part of that trip (can you say Bali?), we just loved Malaysia. Besides KL, we also traveled to Penang, Kuching, and Melaka–all so different.
After this trip, my mom flew back to the US while I headed–solo–to Vietnam and Cambodia. They weren’t exactly top destinations for Americans back then. The US didn’t even have relations with Vietnam. And Pol Pot was still hiding in the jungles of Cambodia. But that’s another story for another day.
