Gioia hit country number 15 this weekend: Macao* (or Aomen in Chinese). Despite her sober demeanor in this photo, Gioia had a great time. She and I rode on a gondola in the Venetian, where she proceeded to sing three full songs after the gondolier sang. One of Gioia's songs was a very long and complex song about a butterfly. I am not quite sure what it was all about (as it was all in Chinese), but it certainly had a lot of stanzas.
We had great Portuguese food, did some shopping, saw a show, swam in the heated pool, ate some more.... it was a great time. Now back to reality. T minus two weeks before the movers come. Yikes.
*Is Macao a separate country from China, you ask? Well, good question. For this tally, we are following the country list published by the Traveler's Century Club. So yes, it counts.
