Street art In George Town

When I had resigned from my job and moved to the North East, one of the things I had expected to be able to do is to blog more frequently and regularly, among other things.

We had first decided to walk to the heritage area of George Town right from our hotel near Komtar, but thanks to the humidity we soon hopped on one of the Rapid Penang buses (CAT bus) that ply at regular intervals and are free.
