New Year's Show

29 Jan 2006

As many of you may know today is Chinese New Year. This is the year ofr the Dog and among other things this is the first year that firecrackers are legal in Beijing after a 12 year ban. What does that mean? I means that the night sky is lit up like Baghdad during Desert Storm.

Fire cracker just starting to goFireworks were being set-off right in the center of my 3-building apartment complex. I got a free show all night.

One of the better photos, notice that I didn't need to use the flash.
