Happy Year of the Pig!

By Jim Boyce | We are in the midst of the Chinese New Year holidays here in Beijing, a week-plus of “eat, drink and repeat”, as in is ushered Year of the Pig. It’s quiet this time, with firecrackers banned in our parts and yet is to be heard a single pop, bang, boom or whistle. That’s in stark contrast to these furious fusillades of fireworks the last time Pig visited, in 2007. Even so, the wine and the food have been good and plentiful and enjoyed with good company. Here’s to wishing everyone all the best in the coming year.
