The Mid-Autumn Festival is a harvest festival celebrated by the Chinese in September and/or October with the main celebration day on the day of the full moon. This year that was September 27th. After Church we headed down to Chinatown to check out the festival and see what it was all about. It involved quite a lot of waiting around and trying to figure out if we were even in the right place.
Tatum saw this wall in the MRT and asked us to take a picture of her in front of it. I think we might take too many pictures and it's beginning to rub off. ;)
I thought it was hilarious that Brennan's sweat was in the shape of the backpack straps. Disgusting I know, but we had to document the ridiculous amount of sweat at least once. Some day I will have forgotten just how sweaty it was here. And these nasty pictures will help me remember. :)
The kids shared a seat right next to this Indian boy. Poor kid. Our kids should be small enough to share a seat but they are so dang squirmy that they kept hitting him and bumping into him and just being crazy. He was mostly a good sport even though he looks totally unhappy.
On our walk home from the train we ran into our neighbors/friends from Beijing who shared another lantern with us and some mooncakes. It was our first taste of a mooncake. And hopefully our last. :)
Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!
