The ex Portuguese colony: Macau

While in Hong Kong we took a one day trip to Macau! After 1 hour in the catamaran we arrived to the emigration counter.... and waited 1 hour!!! because there was this huge queue of Mainlanders (Chinese) getting into Macau. Guess for what ? 

Unfortunately not for the Portuguese Egg tarts! eheehee... Gambling! 

Portuguese is indeed the second language... in all the written official documents... but not really spoken :(

The first casino, Grand Lisboa

The Portuguese influence, 

What is this ? Pork Chop Bun !??! no no no! we call it Bifana!!! yummy Bifana!!

Calçada Portuguesa!!!

Luis de Camões,

O quiosque!! 

We had a wonderful tour guide! Mr. Carvalhal :) 

He took us to a place where we had an amazing Squid Rice!!! Arroz de Polvo!!!

Amazing views!

The buildings in the back are all the casinos, 

The casino madness! buses and buses of Chinese people going there to spend all their money! yes because the money they win... they spend it in all the incredible huge malls that cover the ground around the casinos!

The Venetian! one of the biggest casinos in Macau,

The City of dreams,
