Macau was an interesting place to visit, being right next door to Hong Kong.We were impressed with this building - Sao Paulo, A Catholic landmark.It was burnt down in 1835.You are able to see only the front and the back façade of the front side of the building. It feels weird to walk indoors only to find you’re outside again.
It was interesting to discover how difficult it was to bury foreigners out there. Portuguese Catholics did not allow Protestants to be buried on their soil so the East India Company bought some land in 1814 for the old Protestant Cemetary.
It was further surprising to find Artist George Chinnery, (died 1852.)
Royal Navy Capt. J.H. Spencer / Churchill, son of the 5th Duke of Marlbrough and great great grand uncle of Winston Churchill and US Naval Lieut Joseph Harod Adams, grandson of the second President of the United States John Adams and Nephew of the 6th John Quincy Adams, buried there.
