For my last weekend trip I flew to George Town, the main town of Penang Island in Malaysa. In 2008, the inner city of George Town was listed as an UNESCO cultural heritage site as an architecturally and culturally unique urban area in Southeast Asia. Trying to keep the historic buildings from crumbling is a herculean task as the hot and humid tropical climate is not kind to buildings. Everywhere nature is trying to take over with entire trees sprouting from cracks in the walls.
