The Chowrasta Market was busy this morning when I stopped by to pick up some dried mango.  A few blocks further on was KOMTAR, the tallest building in Penang.  KOMTAR is part government offices, part shopping center, and also the main bus station for the island.  Took Bus 10 to the Penang Botanical Gardens and walked around there with a Chinese college student who had been on the same bus.  Back in Penang this afternoon I did some shopping, walked over to explore the Eastern and Oriental Hotel (E&O), built in 1885 and still the most elegant and expensive hotel in Penang.  Time to start packing for the long trip home.

I hope your trip home is smooth in all ways. Hopefully all this snowing every day will be done before you get here. Thanks for the travel story.

Just confirmed tomorrow's ticket on United so I guess it is true that I'll be home soon. It's been a great six weeks... There are so many things about SE Asia that I love. . Thanks for both of your best wishes. See or talk with you soon.
