Kuala Lumpur

Every 10 weeks, I have to renew my business visa here in Myanmar. This means I gotta go on a 'visa run'. My company pays my expenses for these brief overseas jaunts, and so although I agree with those who say the immigration department's policies are unnecessarily polemic and protectionist, from my point of view, I get to go some place cool every couple of months!

A couple weeks ago, instead of my usual Bangkok visa run, I went to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It only cost about $40 more, round trip, to go to "KL" versus "BKK". It was worth it. KL is a great city. The food was wonderful, the transportation system was awesome and the architecture was intriguing.

My only complaint was that the ukulele shop I wanted to visit was inexplicably closed on a Wednesday afternoon.
