Article about Malacca/Melaka
I simply have to share this… Today while surfing net for our recess week travels I found this article on National Geographic. I wish I would have read this before the weekend trip to Melaka. I believe it would have given me a different feel for Melaka. Author writes about Malacca Straights and Batam (the island we’re going to this weekend – Chinese New Years Weekend). Maybe we’ll go to one of the places mentioned in the article, where the pirates shoot pool and plan their next “happy happy”.
Article is great and supplementary materials (field notes, photos) are really awesome.
