Pictures from Georgetown, Penang

George Town is the capital of the state of Penang in Malaysia. It is named after Britain’s King George III. Countless Chinese and Indian temples, neoclassical reminders of the Raj and a gazillion old-fashioned little shops make Georgetown a fascinating place to wander.
It was listed by UNESCO in 2008 as a World Heritage Site and that might preserve it in its beauty for the next generations to enjoy. Than again I did see so many houses that look like they will break into little pieces any time soon.

At the end of the street where you see the little green bush. That is where the Roti is made and that is where I had some that morning.

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.

  1. What the heck is roti – broken apart pancakes?

  2. The traditional flat bread originating from South Asia is known as roti; pronounced “rho tee”. It is normally eaten with cooked vegetables or curries; it can be called a carrier for curries or cooked vegetables. It is made most often from wheat flour, cooked on a flat or slightly concave iron griddle called a tawa. That is the definition. They make a really thin – almost see through piece of roti. Than you put it on the hot griddle and fold it there. If you like they put egg and onion or only onion or banana in it. than you fold it together so it is very very fluffy – hmmmmmm – than you have a good curry to dip = heaven!!
