Greetings from KL

I arrived in Kuala Lumpur a few days ago. It’s hot, hot, hot during the day and wet in the late afternoon, but it is wonderful to be here!.

I haven’t taken many photos. Here are a few flowers from my Mom’s plants.

I really like ginger. Apparently some varieties are hardy in Vancouver, Canada. I'm excited to look into it further!
