George Town, Penang, Malaysia
We left Koh Samui for the Thai/Malaysian border and spent the night in Donnock, Thailand.
I had a salad at a street stall-
quite painlessly and stopped to change money and for coffee. Here's Brenda's hot chocolate-
This has been 'home' for 5 1/2 months. No one has had a seat, per se, but I pretty much sat here the whole time- second from the library on the right, sunny side-
We crossed into Malaysia
Today was also our third last day on the truck!
I'm going to miss the truck and all of these people: Marianne-
Jan and Tim-
Corinne and Jill-
Dennis and Dave-
Melissa and James-
Greg and Alison-
Jean and Shaz-
Brenda and Adam-
The Penang bridge is 13.5 km long and connects the Malaysian mainland to the island of Penang at George Town.
This is interesting because 61.3% of Malaysia practices Islam and only 9.2 % are Christian. In Canada, 67% are Christian and 3.2% practice Islam. This Christmas tree is downtown, outside a huge shopping mall. The sign below is wishing everyone a Merry Christmas-
Saying Merry Christmas doesn't seem to be an issue here-
More interesting signs - I'm staying in room 310!!!
Tomorrow will be a day spent exploring Penang, maybe on bicycle!
