Puppet Show at United Square

It's part of the chinese new year celebration at United Square. I love this huge puppets from Yangzhou, China.

A short video of the performance. Do watch it, it is very interesting but I did not take a long video otherwise it would take a long time to load into blogger.

This girl is very talented, she could made the puppet dance and move the fans in the puppet's hands. Very interesting.
