Yesterday evening we were invited to meet Dr. Anwar Fazal, a lifelong teacher and social activist from Penang. We met at the Gandhi Ashram, dedicated to the life and work of Mahatma Gandhi, and were greeted with a fresh coconut each as a welcoming refreshment.

After a discussion and a walk in the beautiful Penang Youth Park next door, we were treated to an Indian vegetarian dinner served on banana leaves. The Gusties all succeeded in eating the meal with their (right) hand – quite an accomplishment after only four weeks in Malaysia.
