Seen in Macau: Granite sidewalks

The old sidewalks of Macau are covered in these black and white
granite tiles. It’s quite fascinating to look at but what heppens when
it rains? Doesn’t it get all slippery and you fall down? Especially on
the downward slope of the hills?

Seen in Macau: Ruins of St. Paul

We took a taxi from the hotel to one of the major landmarks of the
city which is the ruins of St. Paul’s Cathedral. According to
Wikipedia, the Jesuit cathedral was built in 1582 and was then the
largest Catholic church in Asia. It was destroyed by a fire and
typhoon in 1835. All that remains is the facade.

I didn’t take this picture during this trip but last year. Not much
has changed since then.

Getting a credit card in this Macao back nets you an approval gift and
welcome gift with Astro boy all over it along with one of three design
on the card. Have you opened an account just because of the “freebies?

Ah yes. It’s been a glorious 3 days of vacation in Macau but all good
things must come to an end. I will be mass posting as much as I can
before I board that plane to go back to Manila. University classes
start on Tuesday so this vacation was well timed.
