This is the second day of the Chinese New Year. I have paid my respects to all my elders yesterday so today I am free. My older son, Caleb, was my driver for the day. I started the day with lots of money in my bag, and oranges, but ended somewhat poorer. You see, you actually put money into red packets ("angpows") and give them away at these visits. The oranges? Well, they are exchanged, so you may end up with more. But, it's alright. You do get to make some people very happy, not least of all, the children.
