I’m in the cheap-o airport in Kuala Lumpur waiting for them to start check-in for my flight to Jakarta.

I can tell that I’m in SE Asia. The airport is full of the gap year English backpackers. I last ran into this crowd in Fiji and probably wont have to really deal with them again until I get to Australia.

They’ve had free wifi at most of the Asian airports I’ve been to, which is more than I can say about American airports (except for Las Vegas, where they put the internet in the airport, but not in your hotel room).

I also came down with a helluva runny nose on the flight from Kota Kinabalu. It is still dripping like a fawcet.

Technically I you need a flight out of Indonesia before you enter. I’m going to leave via the border with East Timor, so I hope it isn’t an issue.

*EDIT* For the first time on my trip, I’ve encountered a 15kg weight limit for check on bags. The flight from KK had a 20kg limit, like every other flight I’ve had. So I take my tripod and boots out attack them to my carry on and suddenly I’m good. Net change in weight on the airplane: zero.

The exchange rate for the Indonesian Rupiah is about one dollar for every 10,000 rupiah.
