Flag of Malaysia  , Melaka State,
Saturday, December 10, 2011

 Today I saw again the China Town, the historic center and then two very interesting museums: the Baba Nonya house made ​​by rich ethnic Chinese  married to Malesian women, with a very special decoration made ​​of inlaid furniture and beautiful objects, what a pity that it was not allowed to take pictures, but I've tried and I've been yelled at, then another museum with the history of Ho Cheng, a China fleet commander and Admiral  that in 1400  made7 long trips in Asia and maybe discovered   America before Columbus.
Then on the advice of a friendly local family who sat at the bar along the river at the same my table, I walked along a central street  until I met two beautiful churches of the colonial time: St. Francis Xavier and St. Peter, and then the Villa Seporna  where one of the last descendants of the family, an old man of 75 years showed me the details of the house and did do a lot of photos to three friendly Japanese and me.
But the best thing was then to return to the center along the river and found a nice walk and houses with amazing murals and grafftil.
 I then finished to a huge shopping mall where besides enjoying the air conditioning, I bought a suitcase for 40 euros since my old trolley had broken.
Tonight I will do a boat cruise along the river after a dinner at some nice restaurant.
I'm really enjoying Malacca and I'll stay here one more day, removing it from Kuala Lumpur which is probably less interesting
