The first one will certainly warm us up and melt some of this snow.  ;)  
Good to see you survived the winter Howard.

Hi Luggers,
I have been off the LUG for a month or so - hampered by narrow  
bandwidth in Bali and then Penang. Nothing is more frustrating than  
opening a LUG digest and not being able to download the pictures  
posted. So, I went away for awhile while on my vacation. Nice to be  
While away I noted quite a contrast in the approach to swim wear at  
various beaches which I share with you in the two following photos  
(partial nudity follows).
First at Ku De Tah on Legian Beach in Bali European Ladies were out in  
topless force:

While at the Lone Pine Hotel on Batu Ferringhi Beach in Penang (where  
we have been going for 40 years ) the Arab visitors take quite a  
different approach and go swimming in their burkas (no nudity in this  

It was interesting to note how many middle eastern tourists there were  
in Penang and how enthusiastically they participated in the beach  
Despite their clothing restrictions. More pictures on that later.

C&C always welcome.
