Happy (Chinese) new year!
In case you haven't noticed (like, if you live under a rock...) the Chinese are currently celebrating their new year (which is actually the celebration of spring...) everywhere in the world. That includes Paris, or course, where the Chinese community is pretty big (about 1/6th of the greater Paris area, I've read) and where it has become a real attraction for everyone... Proof is that it was very difficult for me to take a photo of the parade... I "borrowed" the camera of someone closer than me and well, I kinda like the effect! As for me, I'm still struggling with my Mandarin, but my teacher is very patient(!), so I keep trying ;-)
