This past Saturday was the celebrations for Chinese New Year in The Hague. I took some photos of the “statues” that represent the holiday. Upon closer inspection, I noticed these are mostly the same statues used back in 2013 for the first Chinese New Year I attended (scroll down to the second-to-last photo).
I’ve taken some better, close-up photos of some of them this year. For example, my favorite:
For some of them it was actually a bit hard to tell which of the 12 animals they represent, but because a few stripes on the top of this guy’s head (above), I think he might represent the year of the tiger.
And two photos from the parking lot behind Bijenkorf:
And finally, the year of the (cute) snake…
Lovely blue sky. We need more of that! Yesterday was rain, rain, and more rain (about a half a month’s worth).
