Saint Gotthard

 Saint Gotthard Pass

On top of the Saint Gotthard Pass. Instead of the tunnel we took the scenic road on our way to Itlay. There is still some snow and ice, even in the summer.

Easter Sunday in Macau

We spent a day in Macau on Sunday. Here are some photos I took.

Things to do in Macau

  • of course make your way through bakery lined streets to go to Ruínas de São Paulo, a church that was built from 1582 to 1602. Now only the façade remains.
  • Walk up to the fort (Fortaleza do Monte) behind the ruins of St Paul.
  • Eat lovely Bacalhau with scrambled eggs at a Portuguese restaurant called Boa Mesa (Travessa de S. Domingos 16ª), they have good espresso, too. UPDATE - unfortunately they closed down
  • Eat as many Pastéis De Nata as you can along the way. I really like NE NE pastelaria   in Taipa (92B, Rua Correia Da Silva, Na Taipa, Vila de Taipa). They make delicious mini egg tarts.
  • Visit the Lou Lim Ieoc Garden (Avenida do Conselheiro Ferreira de Almeida)
  • Go to the Venetian Casino for half an hour to see what everybody else likes to do in Macau.
  • Grab a taxi and go to Taipa Village, get a Serradura, which is Macanese Ice-cream with cookie crumbles or a beer at the main square and walk around the village a bit. There is a nice lake and some old restored houses at Avenida da Praia. The lake was once part of the South China Sea before the land reclamation and the houses belonged to rich Maccanese families, now they are museums and galleries.
  • go to Colonae and eat at Fernando's of course.
