Here in Miri

Well, after a long day in the air yesterday (Tokyo to Kuala Lumpur [layover], KL to Miri), I made it safely to my destination here in Miri, which is located on the west coast of the Island of Borneo. I got to my hotel room last night around midnight, and my first talk of the conference starts this morning at 8:30. So all Ihave time to do right now is say "Selamat pagi," or "good morning" in Malay. I probably should also say "Malaysia Adalah Sebuah Negara Yang Menarik" ("I like Malaysia"), at least the little I have seen of it since getting here.

More soon. I'm off to get some strong coffee and then start my seminars. Selamat jalan.
