A few weeks ago we spent a weekend in Macau – part of our “need-to-get-out-of-China-every-90-days” visa restriction. We decided to visit Macau as opposed to Hong Kong as neither my husband nor I have been there before. I didn’t have much time beforehand to research the trip but found a hotel with good reviews that seemed to be located in a fairly central location. We were far more interested in the historical sites than the umpteen casinos that liberally adorn the small peninsula and related islands, but we did stroll through some of the OTT gambling venues and hotel lobbies on the way to finding a good meal!
Haven’t had a chance to download the photos from my camera yet, but here are a few that I took with my phone. The subject is a carving from what looks like a tree trunk, and is displayed in one of the casino lobbies.
Isn’t the detail in the carving incredible? And in such contrast to the garish surrounds in which it has been displayed.
More interesting (hopefully!) snippets about Macau to follow.
