- Georgetown, Malaysia

Okay, so here I am in Georgetown, Malaysia. Just took a ferry ride after a 5 hour bus ride from Kuala Lumpur. Me being the ever so friendly guy that I am, on the ferry I befriend an older guy who then decides that we need to go hostel searching together once we arrive in Georgetown. Not in a creepy way...

Well after we arrived and looked around for half an hour I had to be straight up with him. I made my way... on my own.

Finally I found a place to crash, but it's 6 a.m. at this point, so I ask myself "why fucking bother sleeping when I can just take photos!".

Here's the result!

I love walking aimlessly around Georgetown at 6 a.m. with bloodshot eyes and facial hair, looking like a terrorist.
