We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Chinese New Year Firecrackers & Fireworks

The ancient tales and legends tell us that a mythical beast called "Nian" or "year" in Chinese would come on the first day of the new year to eat livestock, crops and even people. To ward off "Nian" - the monster, people would put some food in front of their houses. Children were dressed in red to protect themsleves. People would hang the red lanterns and red spring scrolls to keep them away from the beast. People also used firecrackers to frighten away the Nian. Now even today people still keep the tradition of preparing red lanterns, red scrolls and red papercuts for the new year and have firecrackers to blast into the coming new year. Since 2005 the ban on the firecrackers has been lifted during the 15-day Chinese new year period. So having firecrackers is one of the most important and entertaining activities in spring festival.

Below are some firecrackers & firewokrs pictures taken around our building during the old and new transition (around 12:00am Jan 26, 2009):

Today is the first day of the new year 2009. I get up early to have some fresh air. Hope the year 2009 will bring us good health and prosperous business. During my 40-minute walking, I find a lot of rubbish dumps left by the firecrackers last night, a heavy workload for the community cleaners!
