In about three hours we’ll start 2010 here in Malaysia. Randal and I are looking forward to a relaxed 2010 with time to revisit many places we enjoyed during our "Rally" year of 2009. We plan to revisit and spend longer periods of time at many of our favorite places in Malaysia and see some new ones such as Melaka and Kuala Lumpur. We hope to return to China twice, once to visit friends and to plan a trip on the Tibet Railway and then, later in the year, to actually go. But we know that cruisers’ plans change like the winds, so we’ll have to wait until this time next year to actually know for sure what we did in 2010!
Tomorrow several of our boat friends are gathering on DoraMac for an early pot-luck lunch. Friends we made on the Indonesia Rally have just returned to their boat docked across from us and we will introduce them to our new friends we have made here. We’ll be a bit crowded with 12 people in the salon, but that’s ok. I’m hoping that both batches of brownies I made and the vanilla ice cream that goes with it will all be gone when everyone leaves. We’ll start of 2010 diet January 2nd.
This fellow looks like he celebrated a bit too much! Hope that doesn’t happen to any of you.
So, Happy New Year from Randal and me and our furry friend here. A safe and healthy one for everyone!
