This place is a food Mecca. Chinese, Indians and Malays compete in dishing out the largest variety of delicacies and you can’t walk 100m without coming across something yummy.
The streets are very busy but fortunately the place has a nicer flair than the really big cities. It reminds me of Melaka in several ways (including the ever-present open gutters, yuck).
Yesterday evening two travellers from the hostel and me took the ferry over to the mainland for some sunset photography. The sunset was not overly nice, a different location would have improved the situation. However the ride back to the island was just the better.
This morning I woke up with a really bad feeling in my guts and spent the first half of the day near the bathroom. The situation improved in the afternoon and I went for another stroll through the streets of George Town.
