Today, i'd like to take everybody to a special restaurant I visited in Macau. The St. Louis Portuguese Restaurant. This restaurant has been open for nearly 20 years and it has managed to retain it's essence as a Portuguese style restaurant to this day. As we know, Macau has quite a long history sharing the culture of Portugal and China, the food definitely reflects this history quite nicely as it has become a unique fusion of the two cultures.
Macau was originally a trading port for the Portuguese as well as other Europeans. In the 16th century, it was leased to Portugal as an official trading port and then later became the last remaining European colony in Asia. Because of the long influence of the Portuguese, there are many people in Macau of Portuguese descent who were born and bred there. The food has also taken influence from neighbouring styles such as Cantonese, Indian, South East Asian and even French and then infused with the ori

Inspired by my friend @charlie777pt I'm currently moving from medium publishing platform to steemit, as I am truly in love with the concept behind it and the openeness of the bright future that blockchain will allow for us to explore further and beyond.
Me and my awesome wife @paulamachado have been traveling from Portugal to Berlin and now Bangkok; here we are in the hottest city of the world! It's been an amazing discovery experience being here since four months now; still much to explore and eat! Expect some Bangkok posts of course, some photos from my old camera included!
At this point, we had 10 days to get across Mexico before meeting the owner of a work exchange in Puerto Escondido which our previous host recommended, and he even convinced us to attempt hitchhiking for our first time too! We figured a week would be more than enough time to enjoy the ride from the Yucatan all the way to Oaxaca...
Walking through the Yucatan jungle with my brother, eating medicinal greens and fruits as we explore Mayan ruins and wild nature, learning and playing the whole time!
We left early in the day starting from Champoton, with our minds set on hitchhiking all the way to San Cristobal. Since we love nature and waterfalls, we

If Donald Trump does build a wall I want to be on the other side of it. I have been dreaming of returning to Mexico and have pretty much made up my mind. Here are some of my plans for the very near future.
This winter has been cold and really has me missing the warmth of the Riviera Maya, where I lived for 10 years and have come to appreciate its tropical jungle flavor, relaxed, friendly people and laid back vibe. A place where you never shiver from anything colder than a brain freeze from drinking margarita's too fast.

The soil is great here in Seattle and as a gardener, I love growing things here for half the year, but the winter half is so cold to me now that I can't handle it. I never used to get cold in the past but living the tropical life for so long has decreased my tolerance for cold wea
The air is crisp and fresh, like the kind that blows out of the freezer after you have left it open too long; it naturally makes me inhale deep and exhale in peace. My skin reacts and gets the chills so I turn on the heater of my convertible BMW. It is very clear that I am almost there when I notice the big red mountain shaped stone that reads: “Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area”. I pull over and in the rear view mirror I can see the dust build up behind me as I slow down on the side of the road. When I open the door, I inhale and can taste the dirt in the powder that still hasn’t settled. I pull out my phone and I snap a photo of the stone. When I look at the picture in the aftermath I can see a beautiful sapphire blue sky with long clouds that look like cotton that has been stretched across the sky. I put my phone away and I smile with excitement and get back in my car and continue to driv
We arrived in Hong Kong after 15 hours in the air and 8,500 miles! Enough time for 2 meals, a quick nap and for Valentina to watch 6 movies! We did pretty well until the last 1 and 1/2 hours which was essentially a test of our endurance.
We managed to find our hotel via public transportation which is well organized, efficient and cheap. Our hotel was comfortable and a welcome respite from the hustle, bustle and noise of this beautiful city nestled amongst a labyrinth of skyscrapers and towering hills.
The best way to see and feel a city is to walk the streets and figure out the public transportation system. In the two days we were there we covered about 20 miles on foot and rode on ferries, trains, subways, double decker busses and electric trams. The people of Hong Kong are friendly and helpful and often asked if we needed help when we were studying the map.
For our last trip to Paris, I had a mission. Find a good restaurant specialized in foie gras.
I found a lovely restaurant from our good friend Google: “Best foie gras restaurant in Paris” and Au Petit Sud-Ouest came up. It is a casual restaurant located near Eiffel Tower with very friendly servers.
We came with our local friend and she was surprised that we know about this restaurant.
We shared an appetizer foie gras 3 ways for 2 person. It was done fresh, half cooked and pan fried. I love the half cooked and pan fried foie gras, feel so satisfy to have foie gras slowly melted in my mouth. I found the fresh one just little gre
In English, cats meow, but in Japanese, cats nya- or sometimes nyan. This cat-call, when spelled out in hiragana (a Japanese phonetic writing system), begins with the character and sound ni. Though ni is immediately followed by the character and sound ya, which functions as a blend, tying the ni sound to the ya sound and essentially hiding the distinct sound of ni itself. The fact that the character for ni is used to write this word is significant.
One of the ways that the number two is pronounced in Japanese is ni. That means that the date of February 22, when writ

Here are a few proudly South African foods that will make your culinary experience of your travels to South Africa unusually and delectably divine.
This is a South African, thick hand stuffed sausage made from a variety of coarsely ground meats.
This sausage is most commonly enjoyed at a braai, where the wors is prepared over an open fire and served either as a pre meal snack, or as a part of the main course, at a braai this will normally include at least two salads, such as a garden salad, potato salad or coleslaw, pap and sheba and other flame grilled meats.
Traditionally a travel food of the Voortrekkers, this delectably savoury snack is now enjoyed nationally on any occasion. Prime cut silverside meat is cured and seasoned then slow dried to create this very desired snack.
So how far can two overland monkeys with no maps get exploring the infamously labyrinthine roads of Mexico’s Copper Canyon region?It turns out that they can make it pretty far.
The Copper Canyon region actually consists of several different canyons covering an area approximately six or seven times larger than the Grand Canyon in the United States. Some of these canyons are deeper than the Grand Canyon as well. As you can imagine, the landscapes are rather dramatic.
Urique Canyon is the deepest of all the canyons in the region. With 1870m (6135′) variation in altitude from canyon floor to rim, we knew we would be in for some spectacular views.We navigated the same winding narrow road as we had the night before. In the early morning light, the views were more spectacular and the drive was far less daunting.
Although the daylight did ser
Hello my dear friends. Today I invite you to an interesting store. It is called the "broth". In fact, this cafe. I wish that you did not have discomfort when you arrive in Kiev. I want you to know the truth about the capital and did not spend a lot of money. Therefore I tell you about the interesting places. In these places, you do not spend a lot of money.
One of the things I loved about the Wonderfruit festival, was the number of varied workshops, talks and activities they hosted during the day. One of the most popular, was without doubt the
African Drumming Workshop.
The sharing space was a great idea. Not only did they offer free food and drinks (for a donation) all weekend, but they offered completely free workshops througout the day. Simply sign up. You can see the list of workshops here.
This was clearly one of the more popular workshops. As I used to beat the skins a little when I was younger I thought I would swing by and check it out. Unfortunately for me the time clashed with another workshop I was attending so I didn't get to join but it looked like a lot of fun.
The drumming was being led by Kru Tom (Teacher Tom) who was sk
Set Hing Building in Fujian Province, Yongding's oldest (founded in 1419), the special structure (72 staircase) circular earth building. The wooden structure of the whole building without nails, and the thickness of nearly 2 meters of a wall of earth has gone through nearly 600 years of wind snow and rain. We look at its structure and style, very unique.These buildings structure to maintain the old tradition of waiting for us to explore. Walking in the streets there is a feeling of time shuttle. 600 years ago, the ancients also lived in this land, then what kind of scene?!
People may say life is beautiful because there are all joys and sorrows in life. When an actor came back to screen after bearing all hardships, he said,
My life was like roller-coaster. If every single one only can live a bright and stable life, that will be great. I wait for the day a word 'hope for an ordinary life' disappears. If we had a hope because we struggle to live so hard, the hope can cause of despair in real life. One of my friend is too hard to live. She doesn't have money. Her husband is awful. She hardly walks on account of damaged discs in her spine. I'm very careful to say to her,
Don't lose your hope. Everything will be better. How? I will not say anything if she asks
How? Of course, I hope that she doesn't give up anything and
