We arrived this morning to the misty, green landscape of Malaysia, with miles of rolling, small mountains intertwined with sprouting "limestone" hills dominating the panorama. After an 8-hour flight and 3-hour bus ride, we strolled into Ipoh, "The Town Built on Tin" (thanks to its tin mining boom back in the early 19th century) and host of this year's international basketball tournament.
