Last monday, Januari 30th, in a cinema Leidsche Rijn, Utrecht, the Spring festival was held for this region. It started with 250 business people making contact with other business man, from China or the Netherlands with a Chinese dinner.

After that the other festivities started with 700 people, including the Ambassador of the People's republic of China Wu Ken(who took time to talk to Chinese people around) and the Mayor of Utrecht, Jan van Zanen, with a Lion's dance. A group called Jiangsu Performing Arts group was flown in from China.

Thanks! It's not too far away for me either. Around 45 minutes by bus. You should take a try to photograph the opening the Harry Potter exhibition later this month. Am hoping to go as well. The twin from those movies are coming as well.
