Chinese Dragon Day, aka Chinese New Year. Noisy, chaotic, smoky and great fun. We were not there to participate though. This is as close as we got. Noise, crowds, smoke and chaos are not fun for me.
An old Australian saying is calling someone 'a bit of a galah'. After watching these galahs swinging around on the footpegs of this communication tower, I understand where the term came from.

How to buy Maccas #101 when travelling. It is so easy. You drive your car and trailer across a pedestrian walkway and then and stop illegally, and then reverse into an illegal parking space.
