2. remember to adjust your camera settings, or at least learn how to do so, BEFORE you go watch fireworks. i still can't find the fireworks function, dear rose :(
3. shouting "let the little girl through" has surprisingly good results :)
4. the chinese have the most amazing resilience, discipline and motivation to improve and serve their community - please go and watch mad about english! :))
5. in fact, with my empty pockets and empty petrol tank, lesson learnt is to not even drive or own a car. or you'll be surviving on no food forever more :(
lomo+electricothe 2 photos here are by zhenjin. good stuff :) the rest of the fireworks passed us by, jaw-droppingly impressive bursts of lights that make you marvel like a kid in a candy store. and as usual, all poorly captured on film with my malfunctioning camera and shakey hands.
