Back from Haerbin
February 16, 2009
A family lights sparklers and other fireworks in the crowd gathered in Stalin Park on the banks of the Songhua River during Lantern Festival celebrations in central Haerbin, Heilongjiang Province, China.
I've returned from a short trip to Haerbin, having made it through bitter cold, fireworks during the Lantern Festival (above) that felt like artillery shelling, camera failure, and a Siberian tiger preserve. Pictures should be forthcoming.
