Happy New Year Monkeys

Today, it is Chinese New Year, 2016. The year of the monkey.

Are you a monkey?

Those born in 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004 and 2016 are all born in the year of the Monkey according to Chinese astrology.

Happy New Year Monkeys!

At Grand Place this weekend, hundreds met to celebrate and of course, I wandered down with my friends to join in.

The place was full of people enjoying the festivities, chanting, dancing and full of spirit and in true Belgian style… the little boy dressed up for the occasion too.

I was not born in the year of the monkey but I am very pleased to celebrate the year ahead for my favourite emoticon.

Have a great day friends and an even better year.

    Yep, Monkeys. Playful, resourceful, mischievous ( sometimes) … and a lot smarter than they look
