Monday 8th February
Celebrated Chinese New Year – the year of the Monkey today. Watched some parades after breakfast and learnt a bit about how and why the Chinese celebrate their new year. Had tea with friends Phoebe and Oliver, all dressed in Chinese clothes (well, and batman) with good-luck fortunes, red table cloth & candles, beads and threading, chinese food to try including the traditional shrimp, egg and noodles for new year.
Great fun together!
