Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

(June 23) Today I went for a walk that turned into a 2-hour excursion when I discovered this bird park. All of the birds just walk right next to you!!!!

I left Kuala Lumpur this afternoon and flew to Kota Kinabalu, which is in the island of Borneo (which is half Malaysia, half Indonesia.) last night my room cost $12 but I had air conditioning, lockers, toilet paper, a key to my room, and a super nice atmosphere. Silly me assumed all hostels would be this way...... Now I am in a place where I have to use my towel as a bed sheet, 12 beds to a room, nothing locks, it's HOT, and I don't even have an outlet!! Also no toilet paper (just a spray thing I haven't figured out how you use without getting your underwear wet) and I have to pour water in the top to make the toilet flush. But it only cost $3 :-)

I am super happy I brought ear plugs. And tissues.
