High density housing

There are a lot of people in a small area. The island has many high density housing units that are called "blocks". The units are very small, about 25' by 20'with one bedroom, a small living room, kitchen and the bathroom is just big enough to turn around in 5' by 5' with a shower, sink and toilet. It makes me appreciate the open spaces at home. There are parks and huge trees so it doesn't seem so crowded until you get down town Georgetown.

Dragon fruit

We enjoy the Dragon  fruit, it comes in two colors. We like the red better than the white because it has more flavor. They are both very nice. This is the Queen of fruit in Malaysia, Mongosteen, very nice. We like it very much.
