Fantastic Foto Friday: Colonial History of Melaka, Malaysia

Melaka Fort Afomosa

Melaka in Malaysia has an interesting colonial history, with the Portuguese, Dutch and British each in control of the important harbor for 150 years. Throw in the presence of Chinese, Arab and Indian traders and you get a veritable melting pot with hundreds of years of history. Fort Afomosa sits on the hill above the city and offers great views over the city and glimpses into the past!
