Red Sunday (1)

Thai Sunday is Red !

Red is the color of fire and blood, so it is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love.

In China, red is the color usually associated with joy and luck; it is the common color seen in festivals.

In our trip to Beijing last November, we have nothing scheduled for our last day in the capital so we decided to have a leisurely stroll in the 798 Art District.  This is an art zone for a thriving artistic community that attracts artists and visitors from both overseas and locally. The art district and its galleries thrives among 50-year old decommissioned military factory buildings, making it interesting to look at the architecture. It was cold as we wandered in the 798  Art District, it even started raining.DSCF2787

As we strolled in the rain, we were met by three red dinosaurs. They looked a bit fiery, fortunately, they were all caged up.

The district turned out to be quite interesting; it has some shops selling works of art  too. The dinosaurs are, of course, not for sale!
