Igreja de San Domingos / St. Dominic's Church
Rua Do Cunha? Da San Bai in Chinese. It's the road that goes up to...
Ruinas de Sao Paulo / Ruins of St. Paul's Church
This is the big landmark site of Macau. The facade of an old burnt down Cathedral.
Grand Lisboa Casino from afar. It's a pretty ridiculous building.

The Venetian in Macau
Maria (who studies Venetian Renaissance art) says the only thing they got right was these floor tiles.
A replica of the Campanile / Bell Tower in Venice. Two stories too short and not the same base.
Crazy construction going on all over the island
Another sloppy replica of Ponte di Rialto
Still cool to see, insane they made all this. The Venetian in Macau is the 2nd largest building in the world after the Boeing Building where they make airplanes.
Indoors, David's friend has a Brazilian restaurant here but Zhang shushu had a Portuguese restaurant he wanted to take us to.
