Kids on Bikes

I saw them when I was wandering around Armenian Street in Penang last Sunday. There they were. Two kids out for a joyride on a too big bike. Sister up in front, barely reaching the pedals, and little brother perched on back, hanging on for dear life. They took me by surprise. I wasn't expecting to see them on this quiet street in historic Georgetown. It's just another reason why I love this town.



Credit for this mural goes to artist Ernest Zacharevic. I hear it's part of prep for the George Town Festival next month.

    1. You've been to more of the fine dining establishments in Penang than me. Have you tried Via Pre? I had some fabulous Gorgonzola Alfredo there. Another highly recommended place is Chin's on the Church Street Pier, but I haven't tried it out for myself, yet. I really enjoy Tek Sen on Carnarvon Street. They have excellent Malay Chinese food, and it's very popular with the locals.

    1. This is on one of my favorite streets in George Town. Every 20 feet, I want to whip out my camera and take a picture.
