Its the third largest city in the country . Aproximately , 700 000 people . I got by bus from Kuala Lumpur . First two days , I spent with two Iranian girls , Sarah and Sabah , who were living in Tronoh . They were studying at University , in Tronoh , 40 kilometers far from Ipoh . Tronoh was very quiet , there was a street market during the day and night and nothing more to do .
The most of the time , we spent at home , the girls love cooking and it was raining all the time . They cooked an Iranian dish , chickpeas with meat and you spread on bread . Also a Singapore dish , shrimps with noodles , which was really good . I also cooked my Spanish omelette .
Sarah showed me her University , it looked like a resort . There was a lake and a green area . The girls were so happy living in Malaysia , they have more fredom than Iran . They were so hospitable with me .
Sarah and Sabah showed me pictures about their country . They didnt stop asking me , about my trips . When I left , they drove untill the bus stop and gave me away some Iranian sweets .
I hitchhiked from Tronoh to Ipoh . A guy , also from Iran , drove until Ipoh . He was working in the University . He showed me his house and introduced me his family . I gave them the Iranian sweets , his mom in law was almost crying . She told me that long time she didnt try those sweets . Also she was missing her country .
