Sometimes I’m as dumb as a box of rocks. In Malaysia I found out I can be as dumb as a case of rocks. Many Malaysian hotels do not have air con thermostats in the rooms. I like sleeping in colder temps than most people – or at least most of my girlfriends. Night two was a little too cold for me so I slept in the lightweight layer of clothing I carry in case a bus or train is too cold. The next afternoon I asked for a second blanket. Hotel guy delivered blanket then showed me how the wooden frame around the A/C outlet works: slide one or both plywood doors to control the temp. D’oh!
