One must take a customary photo when you are in Macau. There’s no need a caption at all, one look at your picture and people will know where you are. It’s non other than the famous Ruins of St Paul! The second part in Senado Square saw us trekking up the path that led to this famous stone facade.
Old folks were seen “lepaking” at the garden. It’s fresh air here, no smoke whatsoever. Beautifully landscaped and taken care off, not a rubbish in sight.
We proceeded further to Mount Fortress. It was build for the added purpose of defending the city from possible attacks which explained why canons were spotted here.
A short walk up and we were at the peak and we saw Museum of Macau which housed a range of exhibits that illustrate Macau’s bi-cultural history.
Outside the museum I spotted this lovely lotus flower in bluish purple! A pretty sight
From the top, it offers a splendid view of the city. Lots of concrete, packed city!
These are the only close-up shots of Casinos that I took. Didn’t entered a single one at all. Casino area is bustling with activities and people going in and out. After a few snaps here we went back to our hotel and Day 1 ended.
Before I end this post, two more shots of Ruins of St Paul (yea, I cant stop snapping here). Am intrigue by the architecture. It survived a fire which burned almost all of it except the current standing facade and staircase in 1835. How many many years or centuries since then? My grandparents were not even born yet and yet here I am here in Macau standing and touching and capturing my experience here so many centuries later.
Another reason for these 2 shots is if you noticed, there’s blue sky compared to those posted earlier. These 2 were taken on the last day (yea yea as I said, I loved it here!
