The Year of the Horse

As I walk today in the “China town” in Amsterdam, looking for some new year chines adventure and suddenly find myself in the front line of the celebration of the Horse year.

The horse is part of a 12-year-cycle of animals that make up the Chinese zodiac. These interact with the five elements: wood, metal, fire, water, earth. 2014 is the year of the wood horse, taking over from the year of the water snake.
The spirit of the horse is recognized to be the Chinese people’s ethos – making unremitting efforts to improve themselves. It is energetic, bright, warm-hearted, intelligent and able.

Happy New year.
