|And I thought losing my car in a multi story car park was a nightmare.|
Then late in the afternoon the Chinese Army fielded their dragon, a striking creation winding and twisting to the beat of drums as it writhed along the streets in an up and down flowing movement; it was a beastie of much beauty. After that dragon passed by it was followed by a marching squad of Chinese soldiers in uniform.
And only later did we realise, as our photo clearly showed, while the militia strode down the narrow thoroughfare locals to the last man and woman all turned their backs to the street and to the marching men and stayed that way until the small army procession had passed. A small demonstration of protest but an effective one.
