After Phuket I flew south to Penang, Malaysia. I don’t actually remember what I was doing at the docks but I’ve a couple of images in my collection. My guess is that I flew into Butterworth and then took a ferry across the narrow straits to Georgetown. It was, as you can see, a grey day. The large vessel and the large cranes lurking in the haze are in Butterworth. Apparently, Penang Island and its main settlement, Georgetown, were the first British settlement on the Malaysian peninsular and date back to 1786.
