MalaysiaPosted by Jan Lamers 14 Apr, 2013 11:24:28
The only cool place in Malaysia seems to be the Cameron highlands. At an altitude of 1500 meters the climate is very pleasant and you actually appreciate long trousers, a sleeping bag and a hot shower. The village of Tanah Rata is a former English hill station. The scenery is very beautiful with the green fields of the tea plantations on the hill slopes. Unfortunately my bike broke down again some 10 kilometers before Tanah Rata. As I was riding in a thunderstorm I guess some water came in through the air inlet. I managed to fire up the bike again and with only one cylinder working I entered Tanah Rata. Yesterday I cleaned the carbs and sparks plugs and now it seems to run ok again.
