The air was incredibly hot last night as we gathered with friends on the south bank of the river to welcome in the New Year. The good natured crowd counted down the seconds to the final moment of 2010, upon which all the major buildings throughout the city erupted in fountains of fireworks with magical colours shooting high into the sky and then cascading back down again, the glass buildings all ashimmer with the twinkling sprays of sparkling gun powder. All around us heads were craned upwards, thousands of eyes all aglow with the magical promise of the coming year.
