On Sunday I had my first experience of the Chinese New Year celebrations in China Town. There were so many people there watching the dragons dance around and eat lettuces. It was surreal but fantastic. Our group waited under a solitary lettuce for about half an hour to be in the front row and it was worth it. We had some delicious food and browsed the market for some crazy jewellery. I didn't have any change so am planning to go back for a plastic apple ring. It was only £2.99 after all.
