In 277 B.C., the poet Cyu Yuan threw himself into the Miluo river and drowned. The common people rowed up and down, throwing rice wrapped in leaves into the river to stop the shrimps eating his body. This is the origin of the Dragon Boat Festival traditionally held on 5th day of the 5th month.
So we’re celebrating it on the 1st day of the 6th month. And there won’t be any Dragons. Nor any Boats. But there may be rice wrapped in leaves. And there is a trail through ancient hutongs and parks with more beer stops than a dragon has tails. And the next day is a holiday to help you recover.
