Mid-Autumn Festival

This post is a little behind, since the Chinese celebrated the Mid-Autumn Festival in late September.  I can’t really tell you what the Mid-Autumn Festival is all about but usually family and friend get together for a big meal and then afterwards go check out the moon (which is always full on the day of the Mid-Autumn Festival).  Unfortunately in the city we live in we usually can’t see the moon for the “clouds”. 

Another major part of the holiday is to give and eat mooncakes.  Most people don’t even really like them, but just have fun being apart of the tradition of giving and eating  them. 


This year we went with some new friend to a restaurant near the center of the city that is actually on a bridge.  We only managed to get a few pictures before our battery went dead.
