1st postcard from Macau!!!

Yesterday I received my very first postcard from Macau (China). I'm really happy, not just because it's a gorgeous postcard or it's a new place, but mainly because the sender is learning Portuguese and wrote the whole postcard in Portuguese.
It's good to know that, even thought it has passed some years since Macau was no longer a Portuguese Colony (or administrated by us), this mixture of Portuguese and Chinese culture is still alive. It really shows that it's possible to coordinate the differences without one suppressing other :)
 The postcard and the stamp:

Curiosity about Macau:
  •  Tourism and gambling have been the primary drivers of Macau's economy. The first one started in 1962 and had been operated under a government-issued monopoly license by Stanley Ho's Sociedade de Turismo e Diversões de Macau. The monopoly ended in 2002 and several casino owners from Las Vegas attempted to enter the market. 

 Best Wishes!
