Looking out on the falling snow on a blustering 25 degree day, the Brazilian Rainforest seems a lifetime away although I just returned this week. First, thanks for nominating my lens for LOTD. I enjoyed this lens and shared your adventure. We were just in Penang and stayed at the Eastern and Oriental and you should see it now. It is truly magnificent. The bar is still the original so you’ll still recognize traces of the hotel’s history. Ok, so Bon Jovi didn’t send us his private travel insurance plane to get to his concert, but my friend Angie and I did buy tickets on a small commercial airplane to zip down to St. Louis for the show. We live about two hours north of St. Louis, and I have discovered that taking the commercial plane is the way to go. My round-trip ticket was about $99. Yes, that is more than gas would cost, but we saved a hefty parking fee at the hotel. Plus, we did not have to deal with St. Louis traffic on a day when Bon Jovi was in town.
