Picture of the Day 17.11.2015
About 7% of the population in Malaysia is Hindu which means you will see temples in every major city. So it is no surprise that on top of Penang Hill you will find a temple as well...right next to the mosque. It's incredible how peacefully and respectful all those different religions live together on the small Island of Malaysia, why isn't this possible in the rest of the world? This week the Kantar Sashti Festival is celebrated and I was lucky to have arrived just in time for one of the rituals to take place. I still have no exact idea what was going on, there was music and people, it was full and loud and chaotic. Anyways it was a great experience to watch it and the pictures are nice as well.
I was also attacked by some monkeys today, dozens of them and they were gigantic....ok 2 small ones but still a good reminder not to get to close to their children. And by the way shouting and acting big does not work with monkeys.
