George of the Jungle



Can't write much now...but check out the new pictures on flickr (for those of you still a little slow with the whole technology thing - click link on the right side of the screen labelled "Meandering Pictures."

We are now in Cameron Highlands (Malaysia) and it is gorgeous. It was a bit of a hassle getting here - six hours by bus - well, seven if you count the amount of time it took to fix the bus after it broke down on the mountain in the middle of NOWHERE. Good times.

Our hostel is great though (great being an absolutely relative term) and there are a number of other backpackers here.

We went on the most incredible hike today through the jungle. The highlight being, of course, the vine/ swing we came across. It wasn't marked and I certainly wasn't brave enough to be the first one to try it out. Z was however and the two of us had ourselves a grand'ole time.

Have a ton of mosquito bites and desparately hoping that I do not get malaria. Only time will tell.

Hey guys!! Had to check in ya'll and catch up on some reading! Looks absolutely fantastic! LOVE the tree swing:) Glad life is treating you grandly. Savoring moments my friends. The reggae festival in St. Petersberg a couple weeks back was phenomenal! There were 50 people for the Culture show, we shook hands w. the band, and Scottie lent them a lighter to not be returned...it was memorable. The Dali museum was great...minus the obnoxious 100 people tours...but we took the chairs and stared into the distance on those paintings for quite some time. Gotta love surrealism. Have to go to Key Largo this weekend for a work "convention" aka fishing, snorkeling and Tiki Hut Bar. Life is good. Miss ya'll! BTW--Melissa is dating this guy Ken and they are on the marriage route---WHA?!?!?!?!
