We went along to Chinatown on Sunday for the Year of the Rabbit celebrations.
Our divvy of a prime minister was recently banging on about how multiculturalism has failed in the UK so I wish he could have been there on Sunday to see how many visitors this "failed multiculturalism" attracted to London.
Politics aside this was such a fun day out. It was heaving but years of living in London have made me much better at dealing with crowds and the majority of people were pretty polite. I just laughed at those who weren't. They were obviously soooo much more important than everyone else.
We managed to catch glimpses of the lion dancers blessing the shops with the drums and cymbals chasing away bad spirits.
One of the sponsors was Kung Fu Panda!
As well as the Panda there were wise old men conferring longevity and other attributes to the crowds and a money tree for prosperity.
There were also things to spot if you looked up
and lots of young Chinese women were sporting bunny ears (in a non playboy fashion)
After mooching around we headed into Covent Garden to Wahaca which does great Mexican food using British ingredients.
Another happy rabbity refried bean Sunday in London! Perfect.
