Durians. People love them and they hate them. I saw signs banning them from being brought on to my bus from their airport. In fact I purchased a delicious durian cookie and ate it on the bus. I'd bought it in order to change a large note to pay the driver RM2.70 (79 cents Australian) for the one hour ride from Penang airport to the central George Town area where the old city and my hotel are located. At the beginning of my journey I'd paid $16 for the 25 minute train journey from Newtown to Sydney Airport. Later in the day I enjoyed a durian gelato.

Northern Road Protestant Cemetery. The shade was welcome as well as the story on the sign about the interment of the high ranking colonial government officials and professionals. There was a wall with the Catholic cemetery on the other side. Next to it, I walked through the grounds of St Joseph's Home (formerly St Joseph's Orhanage, built 1891).

The pier at the front of the E&O Hotel. It was refreshing to come upon this outlook and its accompanying cool breeze after a couple of hours walking around for a couple of hours in the 32 degree humid heat.

Vehicles on display outside the museum. I didn't have time to visit to museum today but intend to return. The three wheeler on the left is the Scammel Scarab. It was used in the 1950s to haul loads of tin ore from the port to the smelting plant.

Penang Traditional Famous Food and Dessert and Old Time Delign Shop. There must be many hundreds of restaurants in Penang. Many of them now capitalise on the heritage value of the distinctive nyonya cuisine and the variations.
