Jonker

We are traveling a little more, not very far, we came to Jonker Walk, Melaka, Malaysia. As I’ve said many times it’s a fantastic place, one of my favorite destinations to travel nearby home. Seriously, I only use that term for my wife’s benefit as it’s part of her regular vocabulary, whatever, don’t be like that, I’m very busy…  Jonker is the old world with Peranakan charm, it feels great. I was at an old favorite haunt opposite the Geographer for a cider. These posts are very useful for memory, I often use this blog to recall, so now I won’t forget our travels as I’ve forgotten before coma. That’s often my excuse I know, but a valid one, it’s easy to forget for everyone I suspect. I’m understanding memory to be a trying thing for all people, not just coma victims…

To provide an update after getting home, I don’t think we’ll go there for a very long time. It took 8 hours to drive home because of traffic jams on the expressway, 6 to get there, and now costs around $150 a night for a decent room. Previously it took 3 hours to drive there including customs and cost $45 for an excellent room. Ah well, such a nice place which has now become overrun by tourists like all my favorite destinations…
