China Chronicles Four: Minutiae of Macau's Beauty

Wednesday, May 4, 2011

My friends and I spent the first week of the year in Macau. The place then was inundated with visitors that its beauty is almost concealed by tourist crowds. Despite its touristy feel, Macau's charm shone through its:  

scrumptious Cantonese dishes,

 mouthwatering egg tarts,

intricately designed architecture 

cobblestoned streets,

touches of old amid everything new,

jerkies being sold in the streets,

and lion dancers preparing for their performance.
