It’s a trip I’ve been looking forward to for some time. The last 48 hours haven’t been great as I contemplated whether to cancel the trip. Recovery from Tuesday’s procedure is going well. But, because of where the cyst was located, it makes carrying things, even a light camera on a strap, rather uncomfortable.
But, sometimes we have to take the longer view. It will be awkward and occasionally painful. But, learning from these guys is an amazing opportunity and photographing during the Thaipusam festival, not to mention savouring Penang’s famous street food, is something I will regret not experiencing.
I had been planning to take my flash photography gear, but because of my condition, I’ll be travelling light. When I find the time, I’ll post some updates from the road and share a few images.
