Gung How Fat Choy
Sunday, February 10, 2013, marked the start of the Year of the Snake, and Philadelphia’s Chinatown was once again the place to be. Blessed with good weather, a horde of folks descended on the neighborhood for the annual Lion Dance Parade. I’ve honestly never seen so much camera firepower in my life outside of a major news or presidential event.
Besides being a nice diversion from my house, in which all three of us have been sick with some awful cold, flu, or virus, the day was a reunion of sorts. I met up with a bunch of folks I know from Flickr and hadn’t seen – or never even met! – in years. Good times, followed by a big old bowl of pho, which apparently loves me as much as I love it.
