Here I am in Melaka, but before I continue, a little side note.  I usually like to include a bit of history with my entries, but due to difficulty in summarizing a few thousand years in one entry, I will leave it up to you to Google or Wikipedia the cities/countries.  With that said, back to Melaka!

I caught the 9:00 bus from Singapore and made the four hour journey north to the Southwest coast of Malaysia.  The Melaka Sentral bus terminal was a treat.  I was told to catch the #17 to get into town, only to find there were about four #17s.  A local was kind enough to point to me to the correct bus, and I was on my way.  I found my way to the hostel, dropped my bag and went out to tour around.  I met up with another backpacker from the hostel to check out Chinatown, then I broke off to check out the old Dutch fortifications and St. Peter's Church.  I spent a few more hours walking through the side streets, then made it back to the hostel.  I cleaned up, ate a nice meal, and here I am!

Tomorrow, I am off to Mersing, then Cherating, then Kuala Lumpur.
