Happy New Year!

Despite all the hype around a certain sporting event which is currently taking place nearby, the main excitement for us today was heading down to Chinatown to watch the New Year parade. I was busy elsewhere and only caught the very end, but Tom got there early enough to secure a great spot.

For once I shall spare you all the photos here, but as usual I’ve put a load up on Flickr so do take a look at them if you’d like to.

Edited to recommend this lovely (and, I believe, not entirely spurious) Paris Review blogpost about the origins of Chinese New Year.
