Year of the rabbit

Chinese New Year celebrations in the city. Wandered along the river and through the hawker's market, sniffing and nibbling at all of the food stalls. Hot spring rolls and prosperity salad with radish cake and egg. Tofu skewers and flat squares of warm honey beef jerky.
 With all the rain, the organisers had laid down huge sheets of this vibrant red matting over the muddy grass. The chinese dancers performed with lanterns, fans, knives and ribbons of gorgeous hued fabric, smiling through a crust of stage make-up as the rabbit, with white playboy bunny ears, tricked the emperor into eating a persimmon instead of her heart.
