On the Road around Ipoh

As we travelled around we spent a bit of time on the road. We saw a Hindu parade. They were taking the idol (I do not know if this is correct) to the temple or on a walk. We also passes what is the only old dredge left in the area. The tin mining stopped in the early 1980’s as the price fell. They are talking of turning this one into a museum and they really should. I suspect that given the location of my grandfather’s tin mine, it would have used pressurised water to wash away the dirt on the hill rather than a dredge system.
