Dragon Boat Festival

15th of June 2013: The Dragon Boat Festival

During these four days the Chinese celebrate the dragon boat festival. It is a Chinese festival that marks the entrance into the heat of summer and the season of epidemics.

We had front row seats to attend this festival,Pierre ‘s apartment is just above the festivities.

In short, this festival is reflected in boat races, songs and dances from 6am to 11am. We were delighted to be awakened at 6 am during our public holidays!

Yesterday at work I had the chance to taste a typical dish of the  dragon boat festival made by the mother of a colleague.

The rice cake, baked in a leaf around it with the meat inside. Very good.
