Happy New Year!

For Chinese New Year, I hung up a very sweet kite that a friend very graciously gave me for x-mas. It is very similar to one that I saw on a business trip to Taipei. This one apparently came from a dusty back room of a tiny kite shop in San Francisco's China Town.
This kite has a ~30' tail of tiny masks with feathers on sticks to presumably balance or damp the mask wings. I have to admit I have my doubts if it will fly or not... but after a quick check of youtube, sure enough there are several videos of people flying these things. Maybe when I get tired of it flying around the house I will take it to the park and give it a go!

You took pictures of it, too! I guess I won't post mine.
