In China-Project 2-Chinese new year
During this lunar year to welcome the Dragon, there have been more than 3 billion of Chinese commuting all over the country. So transport hub has been quite busy during the last few days. The ones living far from hometown have to go back and celebrate this event with family. They bring a bag full of gifts and Hong bao (red envelops with money inside) to show their success. To be able to travel in this hectic period, people have queued for hours and hours to buy precious tickets. It is same process every year. All transport station: buses and trains are full of travellers willing to go back home, everybody is well organised queuing to board engine. The wealthiest, would be able to flight or use their personal car. Lots of people can afford to go home only once per year. Low qualified migrant workers often go back with all their belongings, as they do not know yet where would be their future work. To allow celebration, all country is closed for one week living with fireworks noise and family meal.
