    Taxi drivers refusing to take me to my hotel as it’s not in the central city area.
    Twice today this happened. Ended up taking a bus and was crammed into that.
    I am actuality disabled with a chronic nerve damage condition in my arm. Which results in extreme pain if touched or knocked. This is why I wanted and needed to take taxi from Sands hotel to my hotel.
    Will I return again to Macau? No, I advise others to think carefully until the country starts to respect tourists.
