The streets around your house are, no doubt, littered with such detritus if you awoke anywhere in China this morning. May the explosions of these fireworks and their brethren across the nation signal a year of extensive travel, good cheer and a host of amazing experiences for all of you, dear readers. As you read this, the China Travel staff is scattered, gleaning as much relaxation as we can from this government mandated time off. May you all be so lucky. Happy New Year!
