Chinese New Year

Samedi, janvier 31st, 2009

The whole Chinese world celebrated their New Year today. Paris is host to a large community of Chinese immigrants and even has the chance to have a little Chinatown in the 13th arrondissement. Therefore, a parade took place downtown but as I got there late I could only grasp a few shots as the celebrants quickly went back to their Parisian home to go on with festivities.     (click on pictures to enlarge)
