Penang: Georgetown Glimpses…
Welcome to week 186 of Travel Photo Thursday. Arriving bleary eyed after almost 24 hours of no sleep, I managed to find my hotel and literally fell into bed. The hotel was a quick stop. At noon I was picked up by my Airbnb host and whisked off to the condominium that will be my home away from home for the next 5 weeks. More sleep, and by yesterday I was ready to venture out to find the bus and head to Georgetown. Having been here previously, I am familiar with some of the sites, but as how to get from here to there, not so much. It was a fun day wandering around with my camera, and here are a few shots of the day.

My day started with a delicious bowl of Hokkein Mei, from a local street vendor. A must try dish in Penang, and very flavorful. The vendor was kind enough to put the spice in the spoon, which was promptly added to the bowl, and added just the right amount of heat! Don’t you love the blue cutlery?
Penang has become known for its street art. Love this one on Georgetown’s Queen Street.
These two sisters were off somewhere with their big bags. I’m assuming they were off to sell at the market. They enjoyed having their photos taken, but were a little shy to talk.
Finally, the “Treat Man”…no need to walk to the store, he comes to you.
