While in the west it may be Valentines day, February 14th over here marks the end of the Year of the Ox and begins the Year of the Tiger. Once again Chinese New Year is upon us and the great masses are shifting around the country on their way homeward for a well earned break. Trains will be packed and prices inflated. Firecrackers will be burnt and many multitudes of dumplings will be eaten. Some will drink so much baiju that they will forget the week altogether.
