The Week Before Spring Festival Begins

I really like the week before Spring Festival begins. Hundreds of thousands (if not over a million) people have left the city on their way back to hometowns to be with family. As a result, pedestrian and car traffic seriously diminish. Sounds in the city change as well, taking on a more vacant tone.

  1. Here in Jiaxing the city sounds are replaced by firecrackers until dawn and yes the streets are deserted. It’s a bit eerie and feels a little like a set in a film studio. I like your photos, especially the university street.

  2. Xin Nian Kuai Le
    a day late and a dollar short,
    we at least are thinking of a red envelope with a Yuan in it
    Happy New Year to you and your beautiful family,
    or as we used to say in Hong Kong “Gong Hei Fard Choy”
