Getting in the Travelling Groove

From there I flew up to Kuala Lumpur and stayed at the Reggae Resthouse in Chinatown, which seem a funny name for backpackers joint in Malaysia, given the fact that having a joint is not an option, unless you are stupid, no, insane or Michelle Corby
I met a Canadian couple there, who were on a sabbatical, from teaching English in Shanghai,, and we got to talking about the different cuisine of Asian countries, which was puncuated by one of them saying that there is a saying in China that says “ The Chinese will eat anything on four legs as long as it isn't a table and anything with wings as long as it isn't a plane”
Finally after a 7 hour train trip I am in Georgetown on Penang Island, staying in the World Heritage quarter, who's cultural heritage is represented by the Chinese, Indians, Arabs, Malays, Achehnese, Siamese, Burmese and Europeans. Have I left anyone out?
My travel rules are starting to firm up
Rule One : Never sleep in backpackers establishments that have rooms that look and are the size of prison cells.
Rule Two : Never stay in the same town more than 2 nights, unless I am in a prison cell
The street food here is snacking fantastic. Lunch was a spicy omelette, encased in a crusty pancake, then on the side were shallottes or onions in a clear sweet sauce and a small dish a mild curry. Very tasty.
I'm taking some crap photos, I need to up my game!
