Hong Kong New Years Parade

Last night I headed to the annual Chinese New Years Parade in Hong Kong and lined the streets with thousands of tourists and Hong Kong residents. It lasted over two hours and eventually I had to leave from sheer exhaustion. The cocktails I had at the Intercontinental did make things a bit more fun.

This is the year of the Water Dragon and that is extremely auspicious for China. There is an incredible buzz around the city and optimism with the people. I think the positive energy will propel this country even father forward in its economic power. How could it not?
