Penang trip finally happened after a hiccup with flights. Our original flight was cancelled, we suppose, due to lack of interest, as the next day when we did fly there were only 9 passengers!
On arrival at Cathay Hotel in
On our first visit to our favourite Indian restaurant we were astonished to discover when we went to settle that we had been shouted to dinner by a friendly Indian man named Dav who had sat to chat with us. That’s
Penang! Dav also recommended Kashmiri Restaurant for David birthday dinner. The Kasmiri proved excellent and we had a thoroughly good night with Jon and Pam from Tweed who flew from Langkawie to celebrate with us and to spend a few days recovering from their very heavy work schedule.
The rest of the week involved a lot of walking around Little India and
exploring the north coast by local bus, and mostly partaking of the excellent local cuisine. Georgetown
With renewed visas and refreshed bodies we have returned to Phuket and the hectic life of boat repairs and alterations.
