Tuesday/ partners

That’s the translation of my Monday post’s front-page headline :   伙伴  huǒ​bàn​  partner / companion / comrade.   (Sounds good to me even though I am aware that ‘comrade’ has all kinds of political overtones and undercurrents for Westerners).

In China red is the color of prosperity and happiness, so :  New Year’s Tree in the lobby of the Pattaya Hotel, red lanterns in the hallways at my apartment, red New Years’ rabbit on my desk (designed to be hung somewhere with its tassle)  makes me smile and keeps me from going crazy at work.
