With the Beijing Olympics scheduled for August, 2008 marks China's coming of age. The lunar new year falls on February 7. And it's a Year of the Rat.*
I took this photo of a worker in Macau. She is putting up some street decorations for Chinese New Year festivities.**
* Rats were born in 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, and 1996.
** On Chinese New Year's day in Macau, The Police will be giving a concert at The Venetian. At Jotazine.com you will find some jots related to Macau travel.
