Happy New Year! Again!

Tomorrow sees the start of the Chinese Year of the Ox, but Berlin's Chinese population have already started the celebrations with fireworks!

Yesterday evening we went to the Hauptbahnhof where a Chinese dragon and lions danced around the train platforms, followed by a spectacular fireworks display lighting up the skies above the Spree. This was a 'proper' firework show, set back at a sensible distance from the spectators and primarily for oo-ing and aw-ing at the bangs and lightshow, rather than dodging in terror from rockets and firecrackers like at Berlin's Silvester.

Gung Hay Fat Choy!
