It is the Year of the Monkey and already I imagine that SunWu Kong springs to mind with many martial arts fanatics- who are as crazy about Chinese culture as I am.
In the town of Bronkhorstspruit we South Africans have our very own Buddhist Temple. Nan Hua Temple is a significant landmark on the N4 and on the weekend closest to Chinese New Year's Day it hosts a huge celebration.
In 2014 I was able to see a martial arts demonstration. I dug this up among the photos and videos I took that day:
Tomorrow morning I will set off on the N4 to attend this year's celebrations.
To all my Chinese friends a happy and prosperous new year.
