Skybean's Macau

I decided to post my Macau pictures from September 2006. Taken with my Canon A75 (3.2MP and 3x optical zoom) with no touchup.

Leaving the Ferry Terminus from Hong Kong. Some of the new casinos are springing up here. Some of them look a bit tacky to me. I much prefer the residential area of Macau.














This street has lots of those specialty Macau egg cookies. Bought a box of them, only to discover that supermarkets in Toronto have the exact same brand, imported from Macau.

Largo do Senado






Ruin of St. Paul (backside)

After dinner, my stomach felt like it was on fire. So I promptly took the ferry back to HK. Worth the visit though.

Greetings from Texas, everyone. This is my first post.

Macau seems lile a fantastic place: interesting history, high density, romantic. It was the setting for a short story (about a secret agent) I was assigned to write in 9th grade.

Macau is way up on my want-to-see-before-I-die list.

Thank you for the photographs.

It's funny they use pre-European Union Portuguese car plates.
