The town of George town is closed at the moment and get a coffee to wake up and gather my thoughts, pop into the citidel hotel and use the internet, have to purchase breakfast to use it, then book into the Hydro about a 30 minute bus ride away and all buses are cheap.
It is very hot and glad to get to my room and slip on some swim wear and cool of in a great pool and then get 2-3hrs sleep.
It is a bigger Island than I imagined and have got a free shuttle bus to town to look around and eat for the evening
My room is good and comfortable and the food I had was local Malay curry a taste of home.
Cant help thinking of home and have a pang of home sickness, my first thoughts of an English winter and its soon gone!!
It does seem to be quite expensive on Penang so will have to keep it under control, as Malaysia is a muslim country alcohol is hard to get and very pricey. Time to cut down for a while then.
I will get an early night and have a good look around tomorrow.
