The Year of the Dog is quickly approaching! For our first lunar new year event, we went to a banquet last weekend with my alumni group from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. These are eight of the ten dishes we had. Our group of 30 came from four states. In the weeks to come, I’ll be posting more photos of our Year of the Dog celebrations!
I love this photo because it shows how environmentally-friendly people in Stockholm are in that they aren’t driving everywhere like Americans. Many walk or take the subway, bus, or tram. We were also really impressed by how much fathers are involved with childcare in Stockholm. On the tram or along the street, we saw more dads alone with kids than moms. I can’t remember ever seeing that, even in the US.
More and more street art is popping up all over Chicago, and the South Loop neighborhood has been one of the biggest recipients. This butterfly mural is new and at first glance, it looks like the fence is real. But it’s not. I park around here when I visit my mom and it’s always nice to see new outdoor murals.
