This photo is another from a past trip that has brought back a flood of memories of my experiences.
This is a special place that has a unique history and a mix of cultures. This particular landmark is
over 400 years old. It shares a name with a famous metropolis where the same language is spoken,
but is more than 11,000 miles away.
Where was this photo taken, and what is the story behind this unique location?
Have you visited there?
This is part of a “photo flashback” series of photos I’m sharing from my travels through the years. I hope readers will enjoy the ‘tour’ as much as I have enjoyed reminiscing about the trip where I took this photo.
Several folks correctly determined that this was the ruins of St. Paul’s church (Sao Paulo) in Macau. Ben was the first.
Macau is an interesting place, a Special Administrative Region of China, like Hong Kong. Now it is more known as the Las Vegas of the east, with casinos and many new hotels. The casinos look much like those in Las Vegas, although the most popular games are different.
