Flames from hotpots at the end of a Chinese New Year's feast

Today we took the long trip back from Boracay to Shanghai and straight into the loud fireworks and street festivities of the Chinese New Year of the rabbit. I took an evening walk along Yunnan Xi Lu, the street that gets decorated with thousands of colored lanterns every Chinese New Year. After about a hundred lantern and street shots, I stopped at the back of a restaurant where workers were cleaning the hot pots after a feast. Hot pots meals are a typical and popular dish in Shanghai among both locals and expatriates. The flames were just glorious. Good to be back home. I never thought I would call China home, but somehow it feels like this now.
