HAPPY NEW YEAR!
We had dinner at some friend's place and then walked through Suzhou's SIP district around midnight and W O W ! I am speechless!? For a while I thought a building was coming down or something, the sound from all the fireworks was so loud that we weren't able to speak to each other, not even scream to each other. If there is one thing Chinese people love and splurge on during CNY times, it is definitely fireworks.
Oh, something not so cool: people setting off fire crackers on their balconies?! Like, seriously, wtf?! That's just plain stupidity! And come on, it's not THAT hard to take the elevator down to the yard.
Although all in all, quite magnificent night in Suzhou. (even though my heart goes out to all the poor animals).
