(Ermintrude : Brian didn’t make any notes about today but did write the following on Facebook. I think he’s enjoying himself! )
After ten days in Malaysia I can confirm that this is a great place to visit especially on a bike. I’ve met some incredibly generous and friendly people who have welcomed me into their country and homes with open arms. From the very first guy we met as we hid from the afternoon downpour in Johor Batu, who paid for three dinners as a gift for talking with him, to the many kind cyclists who have hosted us along the way. That includes eating and drinking til 2 am with the Pontian cycling club, staying at Jerry’s restaurant in Batu Pahat, meeting Susan and Sventan at Wakalily hostel, sharing stories and dinner with Teddy in Melaka and enjoying the amazing hospitality of Yonjie in Klang. Most of these experiences ended up with our hosts refusing to let us pay a penny or sen! What an awesome 10 days!
