Chinese New Year Celebrations...


Just got home from the Chinese New Year festivities at China Town in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane, with my twin sister and her little boy. It was fantastic, market stalls, lion dances, traditional drumming and calligraphy. We missed seeing the fire-crackers, but loved the drumming and dancing. Above are some photographs I took of the wonderful colours of the decorations, stalls and shops as well as my sister with a fan, it was at least 31 degrees today. Happy year of the Rabbit everyone!
