Durian fruit in Kuala Lumpur

I’m quite behind in my blogging these days, but here is one of the pictures from my recent quick trip to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. On the last night in town, we went around the corner from our hotel for dinner, and on the way, we passed this stand selling durian fruit – known as the ‘king’ or ‘god of fruits’. Malaysians love it, but for those who didn’t grow up with the fruit and acquire the taste, the biggest challenge is to get one of these things past your nose. Even sitting in the stand, it gives off a stomach wrenching stench not too different from rotten eggs. But it’s part of the vibrant night life of Kuala Lumpur, an amazing city.
