Since I’m here in Shanghai a few weeks early to celebrate Chinese New Year with family, I thought I’d share with everyone what’s happening during one of China’s most important traditional holidays! Not much happened during the day of the 30th, except for the occasional “pop” from fireworks. But dinner was amazing! We took a taxi to the restaurant on Huaihaizhonglu and got to see the wonderful lights of a very affluent part of the city. You could maybe see clearly about fifteen feet in front of you due to all the smoke from the fireworks.
