Happy Chinese New Year! Happy Year of the Rabbit! Everyone is pretty festive here in Taipei and the multitude of rabbit themed items are abound. It's a happy time for me too. My school gives us a week long break from classes. So I have 8 days all to myself. Everyone is also busy shopping for food supplies and there will be 1-2 day where most restaurants will be closed. But the big grocery stores will remain open, so not to worry too much. Here's a picture of the Ximen Red House decorated in rabbit shaped animated lights.
