This is Malaysia


May 4, 2016. This scene, taken from Merdeka Square in Kuala Lumpur, seems to me to be the prototypical KL tourist shot. I spent most of my day indoors but did manage a 7km walk in the 34 degree 80 percent humidity heat, from the hotel to the Bird Park. From Flickr http://ift.tt/1UzTq0M

Batu Caves


May 1, 2016. This is my first time in Malaysia in many years, so I wanted to revisit the Batu Caves, which I did with Dave Cormier. It being a May day Sunday, the caves were very busy. On the bright side, the 'dark Cave' was open ( it had been closed the last time. Back to the hotel by 4:30 and a good 14 hours sleep. From Flickr http://ift.tt/1WBe6oZ

April 30, 2016. Fifteen and a half hours after take-off we landed in Hing Kong. I had about an hour and a half in the airport, then boarded a very full 4 hour flight to Malaysia. Had to wait for lost luggage in KLIA. So it was another 3 hours to the hotel. But I ha From Flickr http://ift.tt/1WBe68F

The Horse and the Palm Tree


April 28, 2016. Back home again. This is a scene from my living room. Mostly puttered about getting ready for a long flight to Malaysia tomorrow. The horse was a gift from my first visit to Saudi Arabia, while the palm tree lived in my Moncton office for about eight years. From Flickr http://ift.tt/1QDLS6a

Saint-Lazare


April 27, 2016. Flew back to Montreal, then drove home, stopping for coffee here at Saint-Lazare. The painting isn't finished, and I have other repairs to do, so I need to book a return visit to Monctin for May. From Flickr http://ift.tt/1QDLPqU
