Today, apparently, is the start of the Chinese Year of the Rabbit, so Happy New Year!
We live next door to an Asian restaurant and the staff often hang out by the back door to the kitchen on their breaks having a cigarette or chatting on their mobiles. Earlier in the week, I was walking past the kitchen door and caught a sudden waft of a sweet, but non-food smell. I looked down and noticed a little collection of incense sticks stuck into a metal casing down at pavement level. A little hidden shrine?
