Birthday in Hunan

So I finally found a way around the nasty censorship of this website in China. Here are some photos of the 60th birthday of Chen Yi's mother, in rural Hunan province. It was a great party as usual, and I ate many unfamiliar things (as usual) including snake (and snake heart, snake blood) and turle-soup. I'll let the photos speak for themselves...

Drinking snake blood is supposed to be healty

A new government building is being built across the street. To be honest, it kind of looks like #$%
