it is the year of the cock! i’m in shanghai where outside it sounds like anti-aircraft guns are being fired… fireworks here are abundant and cheap. if it weren’t for the fact that it’s pouring down rain i’d be afraid the city might catch fire.
below is a picture from last night of the chinese new year festival in hong kong’s victoria park. the entire city shows up to walk around the massive outdoor market, purchase cock-related items, and scream nonesense at one another.
