Chinese New Year - few more pics
A few more pictures from Sunday and that's it (it was dark).
Those guys were clinging to a post of the last gates (Paifang) we passed before moving on to Trafalgar square. Don't know if the guy with the camera is anything to do with television.
Unexpected variation on "year of the rabbit" theme :)
This hat was being passed from one person to another and pictures taken by pretty much everybody around - don't know if it was a photography spot or sort of installation project for somebody, we were dragged along by two hungry kids in search of a place to eat
Musician in front of National portrait gallery
We must have missed some sort of parade with balloons - got the moment of one of them being taken away
There was a big scene on Trafalgar square itself, facing National Gallery and steps, and there was a big screen as well. It was a lot less crowded there, and I think I can see why - looking at this more official and organized performance was not as interesting as being in the crown in Chinatown itself.
