A-Ma Temple, Barra Square, Macau Peninsula, Macau.

The A-Ma Temple is a famous Macau landmark, and though it can be crowded at times, it's worth a visit - the temple grounds are beautiful, and the atmosphere is rich.

I loved photographing these cards - the red set against candlelight was striking - but I found them man behind the counter even more interesting. He had all manner of old paper notes under the glass tabletop, many of which I had never seen. I wanted to trade him for some old Macanese notes, but he wasn't interested in my crinkled Canadian bills. Sigh.

Macau is one of Asia's most under appreciated travel destinations - the food is excellent, the old city is well preserved, and the gambling... well, there's that.
