Year of the tiger
Happy year of the tiger! Today, Valery and I went to our Chinese friend xiangzhangyu's home for a traditional Chinese New Years, after a grand feast at a fancy restaurant. The CHinese like to go wild with the exotic foods during this holiday - this year's dishes included duck tongue and pigs ear!
We drank quite a bit of the Chinese liquor Baijou, and we rolled dumplings, both proud traditions going back centuries.
And of course, no Chinese New Year is complete without lots and lots of fireworks.
I've put some pictures up on flickr:
