Hello, yes not been writing much have I. Been rather busy including a visit to Macau last weekend when I managed to get a few stamps.

Hope you enjoy seeing these. A World Heritage issue ( Patrimonio Mundial) and showing  the Moorish Barracks of Quartel Dos Mouros , built in 1894 by an Italian architect on the slope of Barra Hill to accommodate an Indian regiment coming from Goa to strengthen the Macao Police. It is a neoclassical structure. Quite remarkable architecture and rather nicely shown on the stamp.

Have a great weekend
