Hello everybody! and because this is my blog this outfit post comes with an anecdote from when we were living in China… These pictures were taken by my hubby Giotto from out little, tiny, lovely apartment in Yangpu…
So I will call it a hazy night…
In China they celebrate the Spring festival which is also their New Year (the year of the goat), I remember it was a very cold night, and the neighbourhood where we were living, they said it was “empty” because the biggest migration of the planet started, all Chinese people travelled to reunite with their beloved ones to celebrate (you can imagine… in China no place looks empty you would say)… However, when we went out for dinner all the shops and restaurants were closed! So we ran to the last open place which was a chinese Walmart, were fifteen minutes before the closing and maybe we were the only ones there, we had no choice but to buy food, and even buy the cookware, because in our little apartment had nothing to cook with. In China is cheaper to go out to eat (of course in a local place) than to cook at home, so better for me! 🙂 Anyway… We didn’t even know the people was ready at home to receive the new year!!! We were so silly to understand why everything was closed and deserted… hahaha… Then before midnight the thunder of fireworks started… then again, we didn’t think yet was the new year… until we decided to go out to see… WOW! the streets looked empty, but the few that were there, were full of fireworks, turning them on with the cigarettes! We handshake with the couple of people around and wished them a good and happy year. Giotto was saying it in mandating, I was just imitating the sounds… hahaha… it was a lovely night even with all the confusion, and I love fireworks, reminds me a lot of Ecuador as well as in our ny, although chinese celebrate with fireworks everything doesn’t matter the hour, if they have to make them explote, they will, even if is 7am on a Sunday… haha… I really miss it.
