Old Protestant Cemetery in Georgetown

Happy Valentine's Day from Georgetown's Old Protestant Cemetery in Penang, Malaysia.

This was a really fascinating cemetery, with tombs of mostly Christians from Europe, and a few Chinese graves as well. It was in major disrepair when I visited, and I stopped taking photographs when I saw that there were several homeless men living there. They had a cloth strung up between two tombstones and huddled underneath it while cooking over a small fire. I noticed the smoke first, then I realized that they lived in the cemetery, so I quietly made an exit. This is the only place in the world where I have found people living in cemeteries.
