      Next stop was Georgetown on the Malaysian island on Penang. A colonial town famous for its cool old colonial buildings, daubed with street art & its top quality seafood. By day we went in search of as many of the art pieces as we could and, as you will see from the pictures, we didn't do bad!

      ... As we returned to home after dinner on our third night there is a big crowd in our street and we were encouraged to join the festivities. Two Chinese chaps, very much in the party spirit, press beer and eggs upon us.

      As the owner of my hostel put it “ You come to Penang to eat- you should have something different to eat every hour”! That pretty much sums it up.
