Lantern Festival in the Park

Last night was the 15th day of the Lunar New Year. Also known as the Chinese Valentines Day.

Fabien was at home (for once!) even though he spent alot of time on the phone to his office. Still, we managed to take Sophie who froze quietly in the baby carrier whilst we wandered around the snow covered park, accompanied by our neighbours Julia and Vincent.

Then there were bloody fireworks banging on ALL through the night. Normally I like fireworks but when they keep exploding just outside our balcony (and we live on the 19th floor) it gets annoying. Sophie being the real trooper that she is managed to sleep through it. Fabien was so exhausted that he also collapsed into bed and slept.

That left me to listen to them go off outside our window and read Malcolm Gladwell's Blink.
