Searching for fireworks…

It can’t be Chinese New Year without fireworks! And so I went out last night in search of some. The hunt was a little disappointing since I had the odd habit of always being in the worst place possible to see them go off.

At last! Fireworks!

At last! Fireworks!

The solitary photo above is the only one I took last night that was presentable.  My timing and aim leave much to be desired… For a comparison of what other wonderful night vistas I’ve been taking in this CNY, I also include for you a view from Taipei and a view from my dorm room window:
