Another Tour de Penang

Sunday was another active day for Sally. In the morning, we did a short hike to the top of Pearl Hill, which is about 5 minutes away from our condo.

At the top, there is all sorts of interesting stuff. There are abandoned military buildings. We heard conflicting reports that they were built by the Japanese or by the British.

In the afternoon, we went to the Butterfly Farm and the Fruit Farm that are on the west side of the island.

The Butterfly Farm also had a very cool exhibit of insects (including fluorescent scorpions), snakes, and other cool stuff.
