IT'S LYNNY KANSAS
DON'T LET THE RUBY SLIPPERS,
OR THE DOROTHY INSPIRED NICKNAME
FOOL YOU., THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME,
BUT TRAVELING IS FUN.
This year the theme in China Town is "Galloping to Prosperity". Overhead are some 176 flying horse lanterns. These lanterns are the creation of 55 master craftsmen, and took 15,000 man hours to put together. Altogether they stretch 280m within Chinatown. Mingled with the horses are 2,000 giant ancient coins, representing the "prosperity" part of the festival theme.
This You Tube video from Pat Law Photography, really captures the feel.
Although I have been lax in my CNY observations and recordings this year, some of my fellow bloggers here in Singapore have not. Please check out some of these great posts from Bloggers I follow here in Singapore.
