Macau is strange. I really don’t know how else to put it. We didn’t hate it, but we didn’t really love it either. In short, there seemed to be very little to do besides eat. Don’t get me wrong, we love eating, but you can only eat so much.
So, what did we see in Macau?
Well, we saw the ruins of an old church. Or, more accurately, we saw the old facade of a ruined church.
And we toured an old fort. It was interesting to see the juxtaposition of the old and the new with the crazy casino in the background.
And we saw some interesting architecture. Plus, right next to this street was a really nice wine bar that sold Portuguese wine and snacks like speck. Yum.
We saw quite a bit of meat. Check out this place with the ham legs hanging in the window.
We visited some casinos. From the outside, they would have been right at home in Vegas. But, the inside was a completely different story. So quiet. You know how Vegas casinos are loud? Yeah, not so much in Macau. And, you know how the casinos pass out free alcohol in Vegas? Yeah, not so much in Macau. I guess they take their gambling very seriously here…
And we saw some cool temples.
And we saw some really ugly Christmas decorations.
Plus, we saw some crazy things. Like this, what is this doing inside a casino? Your guess is as good as ours.
Or this, what do these guys have to do with Mexican food?
We managed to have a good couple of days. And we are glad we can say we have been to Macau. But, all in all, Macau isn’t very high on our list of places to return to in the future.
