Penang, Malaysia: This island, and specifically its main town Georgetown, was once a favourite GI R+R place and there are still meant to be vestiges of the trade today. While being wheeled around in a trishaw the 200-year-old driver asks 'Massage? Massage?'. It was noon, for Chrissakes! That evening I was taking a taxi back to my hotel and when he heard the name the driver said they did a good massage. The hotel was the Cathay and indeed it had a Health Center which was drawing a crowd of locals. I didn't try it. Late that night I was approached by a couple of TV's in a car asking if I wanted a good time. Only with the sweet young things back in KL, I should have said.
