Malaysia – Penang Starwalk 2013; Along Georgetown Heritage Trail (2)

Welcome back to my series on the Penang Starwallk – Walk Along Georgetown Heritage Trail.

The crowd were waiting for the flag off  the 7km non-competitive walk by the Governor of Penang from the Birch House on Dato Keramat Road. (Birch House was built to serve as the office of the tin smelting plant of Escoy Smelting, known in the late 20th century as Eastern Smelting. Now is it used as HQ for one of the housing developers)
