Arrived in KL, Kuala Lumpur, for a nine day stay. Here to get new visas for Indonesia. The big thing here is the haze. We were here six months ago and a year ago. A year ago same thing. It was worse last year. There were fires along the freeway coming in from the airport. But usually and mainly I think it's from uncontrolled slash burning. That photo is from ten years ago. It's an Asia wide problem, world wide consequences. We walked to dinner tonight and didn't seem so bad. It's subsided here a bit from some rain.
