Penang: thrifty drifters and summing up

A travel blog entry by daveandjenna


... he was a boy). The final kitten took a good 15 minutes to bring out, but with a proper bead on, and five kittens in the carrier, we made our way to the bus station. This was fun. Waiting half an hour for a bus, we eventually managed to squeeze onto the very front of one, the kittens mewing in their carrier next to the driver, Jenna up against the windscreen. Four were ok, but one was collapsed out on the soft towel, not looking too great. Half an hour later we ...
