The photos from this year’s little new year celebration probably look the same as those from previous years, but its hard not to get the camera out.

This is an annual festival carried out be each hamlet. For a little more explanation, see my post from 2008. Although the date is always slightly different, I consider this Mona’s birthday celebration, because her birth date coincided with little new year in 2010.

For the past few years we have been back in America and missed this festival, but this year hung around so it validates my taking more photos.
