Koh Lipe, Kuala Lumpur

We spent a week of relaxing, playing volleyball, reading and hanging out on the island of Koh Lipe and are now back in a big city - Kuala Lumpur, capital of Malaysia. Koh Lipe was soooo fun. We really didn't want to leave but our visa was due to run out. Lipe is the perfect balance of a chill backpacker island scene, but with plenty to do. But some people there were too chill. We rented a kayak from a SCUBA instructor and after paddling for an hour we discovered that the boat had a hole in it! And we had no life jackets! We drained like 2 gallons of water out of the bottom of the boat. When we returned he was like "oops". Now we are in heavily muslim and Hindu influenced Malaysia. Pia is getting alot of attention for wearing her provokative shorts and tanktops. Today we went to Batu Caves which is a Hindu shrine inside of a huge limestone cave. You have to climb 250 steps to get to the top. Apparently we missed the main attraction by one day where thousands of Hindu pilgrims descend on the shrine and inflict bodily harm on themselves as a sign of worship...missed that. Haven't found much in the way of good food here yet. We almost broke down and went to Papa John's last night-yeah that bad. In 2 days we are off to Bali for surf and more sun...DSC_0162.jpgDSC_0155.jpgDSC_0105.jpgDSC_0149.jpgDSC_0145.jpgDSC_1976.jpgDSC_1967.jpgDSC_1985.jpg
