Our life in our luxury condo rental in Penang is very different than out on the streets. This photo shows the typical local style of Malaysia. People make a business out of anything here and it is common to see a whole portable business contained in a motorbike ( like a mini-restuarant or store). Wandering the streets here, seeing it at ground level, is always intriguing.
The traffic is horrendous in most of Asia and that is very true of Penang and cross walks are all but unheard of, so one crosses the street at their own risk. I've witnessed more accidents here than I ever have in my life ( 2 from my terrace facing a street with no traffic!) and most involve motorcycles.
Walking the streets of Asia is a trip and here is a peek for you!
