Wednesday 23rd January 1985

Wake early, my companion has a loud snore and a loud sniff. Breakfast in the restaurant car. Shave in the wagon-lits. Pass through many delightful well kept stations. Train makes many stops in the middle of nowhere - I think its a one track railway. Meet two French speaking Swiss; Claude and Damien, on the train.
My large companion agrees to show us the way to Kota Bahru. He even pays for the rickshaw to the border. Customs man tells me Manchester City are playing Kota Bahru on Sunday. Catch local bus for 2M$ to Kota Bahru which is about 30 km from the border. Find Town Guest House, dormitory 4M$ inclusive of tea and coffee. Eat vegetable curry off a banana leaf and rambutan in the night market. Its very humid. Sleep like a teak log (heavily).
