Where I stayed
By the time night fell there were many Chinese people walking the streets and throwing parties. After some drinks the countdown started and heaps of locals ran out of their homes and businesses and set off innumerable amounts of fireworks on the street accompanied by an enormous display in the sky which lasted for hours. I joined with a group of friends and walked around the city taking it all in
I hope you all enjoy the year of the tiger. The story goes that a fox outsmarted both a lion and a tiger to claim dominance over the animal kingdom. The moral is that cunning will win over courage. If you were born in the year of the tiger you should wear red to protect from bad luck since this year is not predicted to be a good one for you (sorry not my idea it's what everyone here is saying). Have a good one!
