Glimpses of Home

One of the corners of Macau where traditional Portuguese architecture still can be found.

By the way, some of you might be amused to know that it was the Banco Delta Asia (a branch of which is in one of the pictures) that was identified by the US government as laundering funds for North Korea in 2007, after which US institutions were told to cut all ties with the bank and Macau came under criticism for its ties to North Korea.  Afterward Macau stepped up anti-money laundering policies.  Banco Delta Asia is still blacklisted by the US and cannot conduct business in US dollars.

      1. Would love to! It’s been a few years since we were in Hong Kong – Kowloon, actually, at the Peninsula. Lovely! Did quite a bit of shopping; spectacular, even in the rain!
