Macau - an unusual day trip from Hong Kong

It is so nice to know that people care. A FB friend sent a message to ask if I was ok after she noticed that I haven't posted in a while. It was so sweet of her. Thanks Lynn!

It has been exactly a month since I last made a posting. Over this time, we lost a fairly young boating friend and an older cousin to cancer. I haven't had the mood to write, and once I stopped, it was difficult to get back on track.

Some writers are able to produce every day. Some carve out many articles on the same topic, and they can do all these in a half hour. I sometimes wonder if I’m cut out to be a writer. I struggled for days to write An unusual day trip from Hong Kong. It will get better, I tell myself. So while I was waiting for the article to be published on the now defunct, a Yahoo! website, guess who was on Travel Channel doing a show on Macau last night? Chef, author, and TV personality Anthony Bourdain on No Reservations! The daredevil made out like a bandit at the gambling table, ate his way around Macau and ended the show with a bungee jump from the 61st floor of the modern Macau Tower. Way to go, Anthony!

I'm a Bourdain fan, and was heartbroken to hear about his untimely passing. The link to that video was broken, and while I couldn't find the original show, I found the above video a fan had taped while watching the show. There was also an article about him in June, a year after his death.
