Macau nigth walkers

Steeped in history, colonized by the Portuguese’s and modernized by the Chinese, Macau China has become a haven for tourist from Asia and the world.

All the well-known casinos are here, the Wynn, MGM, The Sands, and the Grand Lisboa one of the first, this is where we stayed and it was beautiful.IMG_7370IMG_7377

We visited many restaurants like this one, bad thing is if you get off the beaten path don’t expect an English menu. I asked for noodles and got a very good wan-ton noodle soup. MacauRest1

Where the ladies of the night walk…

By accident and to our surprise we come across a tunnel under our hotel connecting two casinos. Here lovely young ladies walk back and forth approaching men as they enter. I thought this would be a good opportunity to take some candid shots but this guy, aka “I have an official uniform!” starts yelling at me to stop taking pictures.  Apparently a tourist with a camera is not respectful and this aging man in uniform ensures his portion of the tunnel is kept in order. I managed to click off a few shots at waist level.MacauPro1MacauPro2MacauPro3

Safe, fun, Macau was a great get-away and we were only able to scratch the surface. The food rivals any in South East Asia. The buffet in the Lisboa hotel was better than any I have had in Las Vegas and at half the price. I think next time we will go to Hong Kong and take a day trip by boat to Macau as there are free buses waiting to take you any place you desire.
