Photographer's Note

I was in Hong Kong and decided to visit Macau at first. I took a ferry and when I arrived in Macau port the police took me to a hall. I was in panic. Why they take me away. They did answers about how many days I was in China, inspected my ears, asked about fever. Only because I was a Brazilian they thought I could bring yellow fever to them. Anyway I was in China for more than 3 weeks and they understood I was not contaminated. They never asked me about my vaccination..
Outside of the port a guy wanted to take me to the city center, but it was so expensive and I walked by myself, using my cellphone but is GPS sometimes lost the link. Macau and Hong Kong are very confuse places to walk.
Here I was in a Square where a group of Chinese tourists were taking selfies around the golden lotus. Up there you can see one of the Portuguese forts. Hours after I would pass by the other side, going to the port.
The local vegetation was very damaged by the taifon that hit the area few days before.

Estava em Hong Kong, mas decidi visitar Macau primeiramente. Tomei a balsa para lá e ao chegar entrei em pânico quando um policial me retirou da fila e me mandou para uma sala. Na verdade eles haviam me separado porque eu era brasileiro e eles achavam que eu poderia estar contaminado com a febre amarela. Mediram minha temperatura, examinaram os ouvidos e fizeram perguntas, pois queriam saber há quantos dias eu havia chegado à China. Depois calcularam que já fazia muito tempo e me liberaram.
Tentei apanhar um taxi, mas o preço era muito alto e decidi ir a pé. Essa foto foi tirada numa praça onde os turistas chineses faziam fotos. Ao longe vemos o forte português.
A região havia sido devastada por um tufão e a vegetação estava bem danificada. Caminhar em Macau e Hong Kong é complicado para pedestres e usei um GPS, mas nem sempre ele funcionava.
