Random thoughts on life in Liuzhou, Guangxi, China

Double Holiday

Tomorrow, March 30th sees Guangxi close down for 6 days.

The 三月三 ethnic minority festival is an officially recognised public holiday, but only here in Guangxi. This year it coincidentally abuts 清明,the ancestor worship festival which is a national public holiday.

三月三 is also sometimes known as the Zhuang Song Festival, but the festival is also observed by many other ethnic minorities in southern China. Various activities will take place, but mostly in the villages throughout the region. The main activities in the city will be shopping and eating, as ever. More info here.

See ya in about a week!

    Your extended absence is alarming and your presence is sorely missed. With hopes that you are well and that you might be given the health, strength and incentive to once again resume your postings.

    Thank you so much. I’m fine. I’ve just been very busy with other stuff. I will, I promise, return to the keyboard soon. I am now in the middle of moving to a new apartment, although that is incidental. When I’m settled in I’ll post more on why I’m moving. There is a bit of a tale behind that.

    Again thanks. It is comforting to know people care about my little blog.

    All the best
