Xin nian kuei leh! (Happy Lunar New Year!)

It’s New Year’s Day in Taichung.  Almost all of the shops and restaurants are closed.  The streets are empty, and the highways are crowded.  Most people have traveled to their parents and grandparents in the country to be together for the New Year holiday.  So we went for a walk.

We were fortunate in passing by this small shrine near our apartment when the lion dancers performed.  It was too loud for Luke.

Pretty soon the dancers were done, packed up, and off to the next temple.

Every temple and every religion (and there are any here) has their own New Year’s celebration.

We fed the fish.
