Where in the World is Matt Lauer-Day 3Posted on November 10, 2011
“It may seem a bit unlucky, but we’ve moved ahead without you
as we take an “L” to welcome you to this bridge over dry land.”
I’m happy to report that I guessed correctly for Day 3 of Where in the World is Matt Lauer? I actually even ended up winning a $100 gift card to my local supermarket courtesy of a contest I entered through a TV station. So in case you weren’t able to decipher the clue, Lauer was in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia today. The unlucky part referenced 13 (an unlucky number), the number of timezones he moved ahead after leaving from Madrid on Day 2. In Malaysia people greet each other with the word “Helo,” which is one “L” taken away from the English greeting of “Hello” and the bridge over dry land is in regards to the Petronas Towers in which there is a sky bridge over dry land that connects the two towers. I unfortunately didn’t get to watch too much of the program today but Malaysia is a country I have always wanted to visit. Between its melting pot culture and its rich colonial past, it seems like a fascinating place. As always I’ll add it to the list of places to visit.
