Happy Chinese New Year everyone – must the Year of the Tiger bring lots of luck and prosperity to you all! Here in London there will be a major Chinese New Year’s parade on the 21st February, but as I am in Sweden at that time, I instead decided to take a trip down to London Chinatown to see if there was anything exciting going on on the first day of the celebrations – and there definitely was!

It was so much fun being in a Chinese environment again – it felt like home, and at the same time so distant and unfamiliar.
