Batu Caves, home of monkeys, a lot of stairs, and a really tall statue.

Welcome back, friends. I had this post saved as a draft from September. The pictures are beautiful, as are the memories, so I’m posting it 🙂 Soon after the happening in this blog, I came back to the United States and Cali went on with his travels. I wanted so badly to go with him, but I couldn’t. I was feeling the effects of being away from my children, friends and family. Depression was setting in. After Mark died, I was painfully aware of how little time we have with the people we love. God was leading me back to the United States, and to a time of change… I hope you enjoy ❤

We took a taxi out to the Batu Caves. The caves are a Hindu shrine and they sit at the top of 272 concrete steps. On your way up the steps, you pass by the tallest Lord Murugan statue in the world–104 ft tall! Also on the steps are macaque monkeys 🙂 they are cute, but I also thought they were scary. I mean, they just look sneaky and unpredictable… all the shuckin’ and jivin’ and movin’ fast, probably. It wasn’t a terribly long drive out there, but it was nice to get out of the congestion of the city for a while. The caves followed the same weather trend that We found common in Malaysia: hot and muggy. Not many pictures that day from me… it was almost time for me to leave Him to go back to the US and I was already feeling the separation anxiety. I spent more time holding His arm than snapping photos 🙂

It was a nice day. We went shopping and bought a few new dresses, bought things for loved ones back home, dropped off Our laundry, watched Star Wars II and Cali even took a lil nap ❤ Later that night, We went to the Ceylon Bar to have a few drinks and enjoy each others company.
