Photo taken on way here in Banana van–many elephant crossing road signs along the highway.
Up bright and early–5:30 am as megaphones from all over Penang blast out Islamic prayers. I stood on our balcony and listened to a chorus of many, many different mosques from all over Penang call their flocks to worship–and from the volume of their speakers, their calling more than just Muslims. No more sleep. It’s an odd type of song–like long, mournful wales to Arabic music.
Forgot to mention that yesterday on our way from Perhentian by speed boat, we came upon a large police boat that had pulled over about 4 speedboats full of tourists. Our driver slowed and spoke to police and then they let our boat go. Thank G, as I didn’t want a caning nor did I want to miss the Banana Van.
