A Year Later, 6,000 Miles Away

Dragon Dancers parade through the International District in Seattle.

Dragon Dancers parade through the International District in Seattle.

Last year, Melinda and I welcomed in the Chinese New Year (of the Horse) in Shanghai, China and the next day left for Hanoi, Vietnam where we celebrated Tet, the Vietnamese version of the lunar new year. Fast forward to 2015 and we took a break from work (Melinda) and birthday celebration (me) to make a trip to the International District, Seattle’s version of Chinatown. The dragon parade, kung fu demonstration, drivers ignoring the crosswalks and throngs of people waiting on restaurant lines and jamming the streets lent a slight flavor of our favorite Asian countries.
