caffeine fix at senado square

I don't care what some people think about Starbucks. There's something so comforting about sitting down for a cup of coffee in a place that looks the same, smells the same and tastes the same all over the world. There's a Starbucks at Senado Square.

So, immediately, you are already sightseeing. Just a few steps away is St. Dominic's.

And then up the hill is St. Paul's.

It's a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Right behind the cathedral's facade is the tiny Na Cha Temple.

This, for me, is the perfect metaphor for Macau. There's a crumbling majestic European structure in front, and a minuscule wooden Oriental hut at the back. Guess which one is still fully operational?
