The blinding glare of the sun and the heat combined to give me a splitting headache, but the abundance of light made for great photos. I was wondering how the tourists from cold climates could bear this. I must prefer the other time we explored the place at night after the rain. So cool and nice in contrast.
Walked along the back of the Chinatown Complex this time, where it happens to be shaded. It has a little gate to Chinatown that B told me you can find in Chinatowns all over the world. It’s just that ours is a bit hidden. Lots of interesting old shops here selling things like teapots and traditional thermos flasks which came me a flashback to the 70’s.
Also he was telling me about how everyone was complaining about the box lanterns and how this is bad luck. I think round is supposed to be lucky hence the shape of the lanterns? Also I must admit in the day time the red boxes don’t look as attractive has they do all lit up at night. The red snake head is also hard to make out.
