They have about nine tons of fireworks
And some little folding stools...
...complete with instructions
Nothing is left to chance.
They put on a splendid display last night to open the championship.
The finale was BIG, the sky was full and my earplugs earned their keep.
I was too busy looking at the sky to take photos that do it justice. But then what's the point in coming all this way to watch the displays on a 3" digital camera screen?
Fortunately, Cindy's father Ewan took a load of pictures on film and digital. He says they are not very good and that he needs a wider angle lens, but I am sure that they are excellent.
If you ever eat ice cream in Hong Kong the chances are that it once belonged to Ewan, a delightful and very entertaining man.
