Ice Tea With Yentl

My chameleon color is thai ice tea orange. This here is a picture of a building in Georgetown on the island of Penang in Malaysia. Stopped in this city just for a night while making my way up to the island of Langkawi. I stayed at a place call the Banana Guest House which is located in historic part of town which is full of colonial style buildings. The rooms are very basic, cheap, and small but it’s nice and comfortable (compared to other places I stayed at on my worldly adventure) and has AC so I recommend it if you are looking for a no-frills affordable place (I put a link below). As far as I’m concerned I’m not sure that there is too much to do in Georgetown. After finding dinner in an outdoor food court, I went back to the guest house to have some drinks and work on my blog (they had free wifi at the restaurant/bar). While I was working on my computer the waitress, a mid-aged transvestite, saw some of my Africa photos that I was sorting through and started asking me questions. A little while later she came up to me and told me that she was getting off of work and wanted to talk to me further about traveling. Seeing this as an opportunity to just talk to someone new in another part of the world I accepted and went across the street with her to have an ice tea at street drink stand. I have to say that it was one of the more fascinating conversations I had had in a long time. I had never spoken to a tranny/transexual in-depth but it was cool because we spoke about regular stuff, mostly travel, politics, and countries. Experiences like this really go to show that people are just people regardless of the issues you think they may have. Though people looked at us funny in the street I could have cared less cause in the end I’m glad got to sit down and share a good conversation with Yentl while sipping on some bomb ice tea.
