Guia Hill in Macau, China

Similar to Jingshan Park in Zhuhai there is an easy way to the top of Guia Hill in Macau:

And also similar is that I decided to take the stairs to the top. There I met a couple of birds:

I also saw an interesting bug:

And while enjoying some unique views of Macau:

I confirmed that playing with bubbles is not only enjoyable for children:

But the top of the hill is most famous as the site for the historical Guia Fort which includes this chapel built in 1622 and lighthouse built in 1865 -- both periods during Portugal's long control of Macau:

Although I very much enjoyed all of the above, it is something else about my visit to Guia Hill that most stands out in my mind. I will share it in the next post.
