Doing Our Part...

...For The Economy

We are just back from Cambodia and we thought we had avoided all the fireworks and fire crackers noise here in China for the Lunar New Year. From what I heard the outcome this year was not as impressive as the previous year and especially compared to 2007 (being the 2nd year when fireworks were allowed within the city limits after a 12-year ban). However it all came to an end tonight when thousands of fireworks were sent into the Beijing sky to celebrate the birth of the Chinese God of Wealth on this 5th day into the Spring Festival (aka Chinese New Year).

When in Rome China do as the Romans Chinese…so we also did our part and kept the God of Wealth (Chinese or not) on our side.

Anything to help
