Island of food

Crossing to the west coast of Malaysia we arrived on the island of Penang, best known for its authentic Indian, Chinese and Malay hawker food.  We arrived and have been touring around the city with a friendly couple from Texas, Brian and Shawna.  We’re staying in the middle of Chinatown, located in the Georgetown World Heritage zone, where you can see an eclectic mix of 200-year old Chinese buildings and temples alongside colonial British architecture.  The food is equally as diverse with stalls in Little India nearby serving tasty chai and tandoori chicken.  Mostly we have been enjoying tea from the Malaysian highlands, reading and being chased by monkeys in the botanical gardens.
