Mr Monkey's Chinese New Year

"It's very crowded, because of the number of people"

Later in the day, after Miss Carol had done some shopping, Mr Monkey took his humans into Chinatown, where the celebrations were continuing. Lots of people were eating noodles and having their names written by caligraphers and sending money to foriegn parts via the big yellow Western Union van.

The Chinatown Online website has a panoramic view of Manchester's Chinatown taken from more or less the same place as the second picture above.
