Georgetown, Penang by night

Arriving with the bus in Georgetown I could smell the sea, the streets blowing grey dust wild west movie village like but without the yellow, saloon bars and houses like teeth but very old. A man sitting on a bench smiling at me with the big backpack he must know I have just arrived. Meeting tourists coming across on the same narrow or not existent sidewalk side of the street walk but a street close to the sea shore broad and round a small hill, further down the centrum starts and the beautiful cafes that sell coffee cream teddy bears in a mug that smile for the photos of the people that come for them.
