I had seen this amazing mural sometimes on the net, by I did not know where it belonged to. Until Jobbo (Malaysia) sent this postcard.
It is Little Children on a Bicycle Mural, painted by Ernest Zacharevic for the George Town Festival 2012. George Town, the capital and largest city in Penang, was listed as UNESCO WHS in 2008. In the recent years, the sender says, has become famous for its street art, which has turned the town into "something of a regional mecca for hipsters" (the sender wrote).
See the stamp on the back, issued in December 2015:
That reminds me that I had received another wonderful train on a postcard, sent by Eutrapèlia (the USA). It is an ad postcard from a restaurant. My friend altered it in order to make clear that she went for a Sunday brunch. I wonder if there were also some hipsters there...
