Penang sunset – the sky is on fire

Wow - the sky is on fire...

Just in front of the Kampung House where I am staying, there is a beach bar with chairs and tables in the white soft sand, and some straw thatched umbrellas. The name of the bar was Sunset Bustro, and I thought this was just one of those ‘look good’-names to attract people. Until 6 pm arrived (and their happy hour, when beer ‘only’ costs as much as in Belgium) when the sun was going down. Then I realized that the sunset in Penang is THE reason to come here.

So imagine sipping on a beer, listening to some mellow music mixed with the waves rolling onto the beach. The temperature is cooling down to an acceptable level and the locals come out to play football, ride a horse or whatever beach activity along the sea. Then the sun decides to start it’s performance, turning the sky and clouds into 101 different shades of yellow orange and red. Wow.
