We stayed an extra day in Melaka because we heard Hu Jintao the current Chinese President was going to be in town on the 11th. We waited in a crowd near the Baba-Nonya Heritage Museum and were moved on several times by the police and their "tight security". The next day Leesun from the guest house we are staying at spotted me in the local Chinese paper the Sin Chew Daily! I am in the bottom middle picture in the centre holding the umbrella diagonally to block out the sun. The guy with sun glasses looking towards me is Pete another guy in our group. Natalie, Chris, Nic and Amanda are blocked out by other people. (D)

Hi Dave,

What,s with the blue hooded dress you're wearing, has your suitcase still not arrived? And are you sure the Chinese newspaper was not just warning people against this mad English man called Dave!

Love Harpreet
