Happy New Year 2013: Fireworks around the world

If I wasn't so lucky as to live on the most beautiful harbour in the world, I wouldn't see the spectacular Sydney fireworks every year from my neighbourhood. Sometimes I am on my verandah, sometimes I am in a boat, sometimes I am on an island in the harbour, sometimes I am on a friend's rooftop and sometimes I am with thousands of other happy souls celebrating in a waterfront park.

New Year's Eve celebrations are a construct I know, but it is still great to feel the camaraderie of so much goodwill coming from so many all at once.
