Xin Nian Kuaile!

We now find ourselves in the second day of the year of the pig. Chinese New Year is a big deal here, pretty much Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year all in one. Many Chinese folks visit their families. For me, however, this holiday has thus far been characterized by several consecutive days of being surrounded by detonating fireworks. My lord, do these people love fireworks. And we're not talking about the namby-pamby shit our benevolent government overlords allow permit us to use in the States. People were regularly setting off what came close to professional grade stuff in the courtyard of our large apartment complex. For the past 3-4 days it's sounded like a war-zone here.

Steve and I leave for Xi'an tomorrow. I'll make sure to take lots of purty pictures and post em' here.
