The Year of the Horse

01 February 2014

Happy Chinese New Year from London!
Apparently London's celebration is the 2nd largest in the world! Wow!
Thinking of my "Joy Luck Club" girlfriend, Stephie, I ventured out to Chinatown (off Leicester Square) for an hour of amusement. Tomorrow is the big parade and official day of celebration so I was surprised by the large crowds today enjoying the sunshine and street entertainment. Here are just a few pictures from my afternoon out -- enjoy!












And trivia… In Los Angeles it is taboo to call someone "oriental" but here in the UK it is common place. So if a guy comes up to you and says, "you look oriental" that is not an insult but can be seen a compliment or pick-up line. ;)
