Day 241 in Beijing: Kuala Lumpur Bird Park, Part 1

Pure joy.

Pure joy.

And a day after Chinese New Year, my blog heads back to Kuala Lumpur.

Jill and went on a Hop On Hop Off bus tour in Kuala Lumpur and had a great time.

Kuala Lumpur, even though it has around 13 million people living in it, is a rather “small” city.  It is easy to get to most tourist attractions by walking, or a very short taxi ride.  However, whenever we travel to a new location, we like to take the hop on buses so we can get a good idea of where everything is located and sort of “ease” in to the new place without pressure of figuring everything out on our own.

We hopped off the bus at the KL Bird Park and we instantly fell in love with it.

The people there are quite friendly and everyone seemed to be having a great time.

The birds, of course, were the main attraction and they were incredible.

Our favorites were the peacocks that were strutting around the park and showing off to anyone that would look their way.

Another favorite was having the birds drink from our cups and sit on our hands, arms and heads.

We stayed for the performance and enjoyed that greatly.  I was able to get a picture of a massive parrot flying right by us and sent it to the KL Bird Park who then published it on their Facebook page later that week.

The world gets smaller and smaller the more we try to connect to each other.

As I wrote on the Chinese New Year blog post, this is how expatriates make a family that spans the world and find ways to get the support they need when they are far from home.
