Collection of memories

PENANG

In my winter years and not so mobile anymore, I am now into writing and recording my travel days. No, I am not a good writer in contrary a terrible one. Finished many pages and a quarter of the way in putting my travel pages on Thailand beginning of April 2022 my daughter took me for a stay in Penang. My goodness noticed the change in outlook and lifestyle of Penangnites.How can I shift gears from Nature and Travel to History. I have to learn to love this topic about me having completed a circle. time to go back to my roots. Hence this is my attempt in assemble some pages.
