Hey up everybody!
Wow! It was so nice to read all your comments that I couldnīt be able to see before. Thanks Paul :-)!
Many thanks to everyone who has sent comments on this blog area. Youīre all great!
Well, I hope you all have enjoyed your wekeend as I have. I went to Liberdade, the São Paulo oriental neighbourhood, in order to see the celebrations of the Chinese New Year. This year the organisers have to antecipate the festivities because of the Carnival. So the year of the rat was celebrated with many cultural activites, such as typical dances, tai-chi-chuan and kung fu presentations, Chinese art exhibition and of course plenty of delicious typicals food :-).
Chinese and Japanese imigrants live in Liberdade neighbourhood. When you step out of the Liberdade subway station youīll probably think you arenīt in Brazil. All the lampposts have an oriental design and the language you hear most there is the Japanese and the Chinese. At the outdoor market, which is set on the weekends, you can find handcraft works, flowers and typical food. Itīs a wonderful place to visit.
Here are some photos of the Chinese New yearīs party. I hope you like them:
