Chinese New Year - Welcome the Ox

Chinese New Year has come and gone in a flurry of fireworks, ox caricatures, European vacations and hazy weather. This is the year of the Ox and depending you who you ask will bring in more of the same economic woes or an upswing for the Chinese economy.

A and I spent our Chinese new year vacation in Italy and Germany, it was a wonderful trip and we ate our weight in cheese, cured meats and shnitzel. Italy in January, while not at it's best as far as the weather is concerned, is still breathtaking. Germany even with snow on the ground runs efficiently and makes eating a warm pretzel in the afternoon the best snack ever.

We are off to Hong Kong this weekend, and I'll be sure to post photos of our eating escapades, we can't wait to indulge in a weekend of fresh seafood!
