It is the Chinese New year and the Chinese and Asian community in Brisbane celebrated it in style.

We watched Kung Fu, Lion Dancers and several other Asian dances. The crowds were shoulder to shoulder and the fathers hauled their children onto their shoulders so they could see the action. Very difficult to get any photos, but I did notice some interesting windows.

After strolling round the market stalls we found a shady Vietnamese restaurant, a cool oasis to have lunch.

Dawn from “The day after” challenges us to look for windows and post them here each week. Maybe you have some you can show us.
