Since I recently enjoyed some blue skies in Macau, I will take a break from Shanghai and share several series of photos from a special city with a fascinating mix of Cantonese and Portuguese culture. Below are a handful of scenes from Coloane Village which is in the southernmost portion of Macau -- about an hour away by bus from Macau's border with Zhuhai. The buildings provide a taste of old Macau which feels rather different from Macau's new immense casinos. At least when I visited on a weekday in March it did not feel overwhelmed with tourists, and it maintained a small village charm.
