Went back home with Aldora for a few weeks during Chinese New Year to visit her family. This was the third time I've gone in the last three years. It's always a very humbling experience going to a third world country. Where we were staying was a very regular North American living environment but when you see how other people live and fight to survive everyday it's really puts things into perspective. Anyways, I hope all of you celebrating Chinese New Year or the Lunar New Year enjoyed yourselves. Unfortunately we left a few days before the lantern festival but I did get to see a dragon dance. Below are a few photos of a little village we passed by, the town we staying in, an outdoor market, and the second last picture with kid in the Beatles shirt is a photo of a fire under control (you can see in the top right of the photo a guy on a ladder shooting water).
