a night with uncle jean

Just before we arrived in Kuala Lumpur, we found out something very exciting: Maggie's great uncle, who is a big traveler himself, was going to be in SE Asia, and would be arriving in KL from London the night before we left! What a funny--and very cool--coincidence.

We were catching an early flight out of Kuala Lumpur, and uncle Jean was going to be staying in a hotel right by the airport, as he was headed right back out as well, to Cambodia. It seemed that the stars were aligning for us to spend out last night by the airport, which is about an hour outside of KL, so we got a room in that same hotel, to maximize our hanging out time.

Uncle Jean was not only nice enough to meet up with us after just getting off along flight, he arrived with amazing presents: a bottle of wine, dark beer, a bottle of gin and a box of Godiva truffles. Does this guy know us or what?? We brought the tonic, so the night was set.

The "before" picture, after only a glass (or two) of incredibly yummy wine.

We caught up and drank... oh yea, and ate a little, I think. It was all a bit fuzzy by the end. (And most of the pictures from the evening reflect that.)

Needless to say, getting to the airport the next morning was interesting...but it was all very worth it. Who would have thought we'd see someone we knew and very much enjoyed hanging out with on the other side of the world?

The "after" picture. I'm surprised Andrew managed to point the camera in the right direction.
