Year of the Dragon

It's the year of the Dragon according to the Chinese Lunar Calendar. The 15 day celebration to ring in the prosperous new year just ended here. It was an incredible couple weeks with fireworks almost nightly, increased traffic and lots of family get-togethers. Although we were in Bali for the first day of the New Year, we were able to attend a few of the festivities.  Here are a few of our pictures from the Heritage Festival that happened in the middle of the New Year Celebration.

The streets of Georgetown lined with Red Lanterns for the New Year

Oh the crowds...

We are hoping the Year of the Dragon is prosperous and happy for us and all of you!
