Welcome to China

Dan, Ling, & Mei welcome me to China.

It is Chinese custom to exchange gifts over the New Year holiday.
It's a Bobble Head. When I was in Las Vegas over the Christmas holiday, I had my head scanned by one of those photo kioask places and they made a Bobble-Head doll in my likeness.

My Ling, ever ther generous one, offers some coin to a street musician, then to my surprise sings the song he is playing.

Yes, I ate the butterfly things this time. Yes, they taste like chicken.

Chinese New Year

I flew in to Beijing, and then on the Shenyang on the eve of the Chinese New Year. From the plane I could see thousands of fireworks going off all over the city as we made our final decent in to land.

Imagine the good fireworks you see on Fourth of July, the big ones that go up and brust into different colors. Then imagine every business in your town setting them off all at once. Now also imagine every family setting off their stash of fireworks too. Every office building, every home, everyone. And there are 1.3 billion people in China.

This video is taken in the courtyard of Ling's building, the noise and speticle of it all was amazing.
