Many Bridges Crossed
Our hotel offers new visitors a free tour of the historic old town of Melaka on the first morning of their holiday. Mrs CBL and I went along in the company of the guide and one other couple.
We walked through the back streets close to the river as it is central to Melaka’s history. We learned about the trades which helped the town develop and flourish.
It was quite intense and in the 31°C heat and it was difficult (for me) to concentrate as well as listen to her every word whilst I was, of course, sneaking off to take photographs. Thankfully there was some light relief at some points when we visited shops and especially when we had a break in one of the oldest bars in the town.
The extras are of a few sights and people we saw but I can’t tell you anything about them as I was wasn’t listening but more importantly was looking!
