Walking around Malacca was weird, because it often did not feel like I was in SE Asia, but rather in some smaller town in Europe.
We wandered around to the various sites. We went to the Kampung Kling Mosque, though I couldn't enter the actual temple. It was originally built in the 1700's, then rebuilt in 1872.
We also walked around another temple.
We then drove back to KL during a pretty intense thunderstorm. The other person on our tour asked about snakes. Our tour guide said he recently had a cobra (!!!!!!) in his house in Kuala Lumpur (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and has had 3 of them recently (3!!!!!). He said Malay people don't kill them, because they believe that killing a snake will bring generations upon generations of bad luck. He said he talks to the snake and just says, "You are not here to hurt me and I am not here to hurt you. Go back to your home!"
Afterwards, we wandered around the electronics market and Petaling street before turning in for the night.
I wrote in my journal, "Our guide talked about Dengue Fever tonight. Now I am worried about getting Dengue Fever. I think I might have a cold. I bet it's Dengue Fever"
I did not get Dengue Fever.
I went to Cambodia the next day to visit Todd, Jen and Josiah! But that will be the next blog.
