I took a ferry to Macau where I just spent a few days.
I think this is the view from my hotel of the bridge to Taipa Island
The Bella Vista hotel was once one of the grand hotels of Asia. By 1977 it had been allowed to deteriorate and served mainly as a hostel for budget travelers like myself. Still, the rooms were OK, the place had a wonderful view which I'm enjoying here with my bottle of Portuguese Rose, hunk of cheese and crusty bread.
The hotel is now the residence of The Portuguese Consulate General.

At that time Macau was still a Portuguese colony. You could get up to the northe end of Macau and peer into Mainland China
Here's a different view of Mainland China with me not blocking the view.
