Henan (China) - Chinese new year in the countryside

And yet, in that small village lost in China's countryside, party was in the air. All the kids were outside, lighting up firecrakers, hanging upside down to fences. Inside, the elders were taking care of the babies, while the women were preparing the meal. We sat around a cracking fire and - while waiting for our steaming bowl of ravioli - had a nice chat with a local grandfather.
