Back in Chiang Mai

The last day in Penang I didn't do much. Dan did the Hop-on Hop-off tour, but didn't get off anywhere. We went back to the Red Garden for supper -- more biriani and some chicken satay. Our flight was pretty early on Saturday and the hotel arranged a taxi for us to the airport. Nothing special about the trip, which is always a good thing. Changing from domestic to international was easy -- we had no lines at immigration or security, which we had to go through twice. We had a few hours to kill in the Kuala Lumpur airport, but the seating was pretty comfortable. I spent our last Malaysian Ringgit on some overpriced chocolate, which is now in our fridge.

Since we've been back, we've visited some of our regular restaurants -- the Blues Pub, Gai's Thai Cafe, Doo Dee, and Spoon De Best.

Gai's Panang Pork Curry

Spoon de Best's Sweet & Sour Fried Fish

After leaving Spoon de Best Tuesday evening, we passed by the roti maker's stall again. It was irresistible!

We had banana and chocolate -- sliced bananas are cooked inside the roti, chocolate syrup and condensed milk are drizzled over the finished product. Notice the two sticks supplied so we can eat it right there.

The new building I walk by daily made a lot of progress while we were gone. The cinder block walls are being coated with cement and there are green cloth hangings up to hide the work. In this photo the woman below has just sent a wheelbarrow up by pulley to the worker standing on the second floor. I saw them doing this with all the bricks earlier, but this was the first time I caught a photo.

And to round off this post, two beautiful flowering trees along the moat.
