We’re here at a good time as it’s Chinese New Year and there are a lot of celebrations all week – with lanterns, monkey decorations, and little red packets in trees… the main feature however is an amzing amount of firework displays, with rockets and crackers that would probably not pass the health and safety requirements of UK trading!

We were cycling along on New Years Day when a couple in a 4×4 pulled us over to wish us a Happy New Year, give us some encouragement, and give us two of these wrapped oranges (which are apparently kept in cold storage for several weeks to last until this point past the season, and therefore quite a bit more expensive than usual – they were delicious!
