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.
