Macau, China - 18th December 2007

By: tarepanda

Today we visit the Museum of Macau.

First, we see this terra cotta warrior at the entrance.  Our host tells us that the real thing is in Xian, but I want a photo with him anyway!!

This tablet shows how letters like moon, field and water evolved from pictographs into characters.

These are how coins look like hundreds of years ago.

This is the set up of a traditional tea house in the olden days.

And this is a shop where they make little god statues so people can put in their homes.

A traditional medicine shop.  There is a big chopper for chopping up herbal roots and a grinder for grounding the herbs.

And this is a traditional wedding chamber.  Red is the lucky color. How pretty it is!

Puppets for Chinese opera.

And this is a picture of the Macau Tower.  You can do the world's tallest commercial bungie jump from it.  Well, not me!

And this little temple is called Na Tcha Temple.  It worships a little god who is a boy that killed the dragon.

We had Macanese food for lunch.  This is Portuguese style chicken and balcahua pancake.
