Traipsing around Penang

I woke up early this morning, determined to see all the wonderful street art sans the crowds of tourists. By early I mean I was out of the hostel by 8:30am, but still that's early for most backpackers - the hostel was dead quiet when I left! Penang is famous for its unique street art, [...]
