It's midnight here and the fireworks have been going non-stop since about noon. My boyfriend and I took a walk earlier to watch people setting off long ropes of firecrackers in the streets, with big rockets and explosions flying out of every parking lot and street corner in town. I'm expecting more of the same all day tomorrow, because China knows how to party. So happy year of the horse, everyone!
ETA: What's your sign, guys, and what do you think about it? I'm a snake, which I've always liked, because snakes are supposed to be cool and intelligent and sexy, though also jealous, with a tendency to hold on to grudges.
