Distinct Mix Holds On in a Corner of China


I found this interesting article about Macao in the New York Times. Macao, an island very near Hong Kong, used to be a Portuguese colony. It was handed over to China in 1999. The article talks about the mix of cultures, food and languages found there. Macao is definitely on my list of places to see.

I have this goal of visiting all of the former Portuguese colonies. So far, I´ve been to Brazil, Mozambique and now, Angola. That leaves Guinea Bissau, São Tomé e Prinicipe, Cabo Verde, Goa, Timor Leste and Macao. I need to get started with those plans!

Maybe I need to plan a trip to Angola so I can cross it off my list too - and now I'm thinking I need to add the others to my travel list too!
