Lunar New Year Lanterns

Back in 2005, Topper and I went to Hong Kong for the first time. It was around the time of the Lunar New Year celebrations, so I got plenty of photos of the beautiful red decorations and we really enjoyed the wonderful fireworks display over the harbour. It was a lovely holiday in a really exciting part of the world and we’re lucky enough to be going back. This year’s return visit may not be at such a vibrant time of year, but there should be a few more attractions to check out that were closed last time we were there so there should still be plenty to do. Also, my photography skills have improved somewhat since then (as has the standard of my compact camera of choice), so my Flickr updates will hopefully be a bit more impressive.
Colour me jealous! Have a great time out there and EAT LOTS OF FOOD!
