Love those May Day celebrations!

There were other celebrations going on as well that happened to take place yesterday, according to the Reuters photos. A "demonstration" with burning cars in Germany. A donkey festival in Mexico. A People's Liberation Army Camp Open Day in Hong Kong.

And finally, a water buffalo:

Between my birthday and all the celebrations, May Day was one busy day.
