Down memory lane

There are five houses located along the main corridor of Kamunting Road (Malay: Jalan Kamunting).

They are “Moonlight” cottage (A47), “Sunlight” mansion (A46), “Unit A43”, the “Lee Villa” (A44) and the Lutheran Mission bungalow (A45).

The distance between “Moonlight” and the Lutheran bungalow is approximately 1,440 meters. It takes about 30 minutes to cover this route.

After leaving “Moonlight” at 1.30pm, Thompson was seen at the Lutheran estate at around 4pm. While he was at the complex, he did not speak to anyone. Later, he left the place and headed the same way from where he came.

The question is this: Why was he on this road for more than two hours? Could it be that he was waiting for someone? Or could it be something else?
