What I do for geocaching

What would you do with 3 hours in Macau, a city that is unique in its combination of European and Asian cultures? Maybe take a cultural tour of the city, or at least get a cab to drive you to the major sites? Well, I got off the ferry and went straight for the only geocache...by foot. You laugh, but I think I might have a serious problem. In Hong Hong, I tried for 4 caches but only found 2. But I suppose, in its(/my) defense, it is a good way to see some of the off-the-beaten-path sights. And it is a way to make Saxtor jealous.

Luckily, after some huffing and puffing to get up the hill (with my heavy backpack), I found the cache quickly so I had enough time to stroll through a few of the narrow streets and see a few of the gorgeous building facades. I didn't, however, get a chance to check out any of the casinos. But for a traveller on a budget, maybe casinos aren't the best idea.

Anyway, my time in both Macau and Hong Kong were way way too short, but there might be a revisit in the near future. Stay tuned for details.

You have a problem. I would suggest a twelve step program, but you'd probably find one where each step is given as long/lat coords.

OK, first, I didn't double post, I don't know what the problem is and I suggest you have a serious talk with whatever deadbeat programmer does your website. Second, 1007 BB St Apt C, Universal City, TX 78148. Jonah's been dying to hear from ya.

You look so "Forest Gumpy-lonely" sitting on that bench all by yourself. I suspect you are writing "Life is like a geocache..."

I'd be appalled if you didn't use this travel as an opportunity to do some caching! No jealousy here....I'd prefer to call it bitter envy.

I didn't know exactly where to put this one as I didn't see any Taiwan tag down on the bottom right (weren't you there once?), though you do have 2 Mexicos (?)... I just thought this place my sister sent me to read about might be up your alley if you ever get back to Taipei, as it somehow combines up with your Squatemala experience ;-)
