Moon Festival

Ele in Taipei!

The Moon Festival is one of the biggest annual festivals in Chinese culture. It is a centre-piece of the Lunar Calendar, but mainly seems to involve the entire island making barbecues. The whole place is full of smoke (I am convinced you could see it from Hong Kong) as people cook food in the streets, on the roofs, in the parks ... but it is a really nice festival where family comes together.

Full moon ... on the roof with my Chinese teacher, a couple of her students, Ele, Tanja and Michael
