Hong Kong, Part Two

After enjoying two days in Hong Kong, we decided to ferry on over to Macau for a day trip and some gamblin'. Over on the west side of the Pearl River Delta, they do things a little different. It was a Portuguese colony and is now a SAR of China, like HK. We spent the day going to a few gardens, historical sites, the history museum (my favorite part), and the old red-light district (Zach's favorite, jk his favorite was the casino). We ended the day with a fancy dinner at the Clube Militar de Macau- a fantastic blend of Portuguese and Macanese cuisine. We didn't win any money (the minimum bets were a little steep for our pockets) but we had a great day!!

We still had a day and a half left in HK, here are some pics to sum it up!
