Winter (China) lights

IMGP7588 There were several times while I was in Japan that I saw Asia trying to do Europe, food, festivals, architecture, but last week was one of the first that I saw Europe trying to do Asia. (Other than the several all-you-can-eat tabehodai sushi dinners) The Euromast Park in Rotterdam put on a China lights festival. For three weeks a series of instillations lit up the park, adding some radiance to the January/February gloom.
