Spring Festival in Moshikou

In times of old, the ancient caravan route of Moshikou Street came alive with the sounds of camels and ringing bells, as traders journeyed along this path. At dusk, the clear chimes of camel bells resonated through the tranquil night, echoing tales of ages past. Lao She, in his classic ‘Rickshaw Boy’, narrates of Xiangzi, who led three camels back to Beiping through Moshikou. Today, as the New Year festivities stretch to the Lantern Festival, colorful lanterns drape the old street’s boughs. Amidst the soft glow, people wander the historic road, from the early evening lights to the deep silence of night, dreaming back through the corridors of time.
