A Busy Weekend In Kuala Lumpur

My weekdays have been very busy teaching a photography class but I did get out this weekend with some of my students to take in some of the sites in and around Kuala Lumpur.  Friday Night was spent taking photos of the Petronas Towers in downtown KL.  There is a beautiful park near the towers and even though it rained a little and the humidity was through the roof, I still managed to get some nice shots of the towers and surrounding buildings.

The next day was spent in the city of Melaka.  This is an old port with a lengthy history.  It has been occupied by the Dutch, Portugese, Chinese, and Arabs, dating back to the early 16th century.  Now it is a popular tourist spot with many historic buildings and museums.  One of my favorite spots was a mosque situated over the water on the coast.  I felt bad because I made our group stay there until just after sunset but it was well worth it.

Sunday was spent touring around KL with a visit to Chinatown, the Central Market, and a few other locations around town.  Mix in some good company and great food and you have the makings of a fantastic weekend.  I have one more week here and will be pretty busy with my class but hopefully I will get a little more site seeing and shopping in before I make the long trip back home.
