Day Twenty Six, February 17, 2011

dazzled...

Today the Chinese New Year festivities come to an end with a big boom! It is the Lantern Festival’s main celebration. I went to Yu Yuan (Yu Gardens) in Puxi to witness the festivities and now as I write this, the sky is on fire with millions of fireworks that are going off all over Shanghai and most probably China to mark the important day. The louder the fireworks, the better the new year, or so it is believed.

This lady in Yu Gardens was so dazzled with the lights of the lanterns that filled the streets as she looked on filled with joy. This is one day where almost everyone is smiling around here.

I would love to know what you think!!
