On my way back from picking up my fully restored electronic dictionary, I happened to pass by Shizi Qiao on Hunan Lu in all its New Year’s splendor.
Shizi Qiao all decked out for Chinese New Year!
There was a stand selling really beautiful paper-cuts by Jiansu artist Chen Yao (陈耀):
Chen Yao’s （陈耀） paper-cut stand
The paper-cutting master himself! (Well a picture of him at least…)
Specially designed for Chinese New Year 2010!
The images in that last paper-cut were chosen to represent different auspicious sayings…Next up we’ve got the lantern festival to celebrate the end of two weeks of New Year’s celebration. I can’t wait to check out Fuzi Miao on Sunday!
Gearing up for Yuanshao is no problem!
Not much to report for today. We had make-up classes since we get an eight day break in honor of the National Holiday.
Here’s a couple of day shots of Lion’s Bridge @ Hunan Lu:
I’ve officially hit the three week mark and my Chinese reading skills are…improving? (I certainly hope so!)
M. and I went to a stable today to see horses! (And possibly arrange some kind of riding schedule for her...) I was too fascinated by the horses and forgot to take actual pictures of them.
Then we got bingtang hulu on the way back at Shizhi Qiao.
After a long day of meetings, I went out with some of my classmates for dinner. What started off as a brisk walk around the block turned into several streets of wandering. We ended up on Hunan Lu at a restaurant that appeared to specialize in North-eastern Chinese cuisine.
Northeast Chinese cuisine.
Corn mantou with duck and mushroom.
I love barley tea!
