Out at Cho Tet (New Year Market) & Lunch
Here is Dek on his first stop of many during the new year of the Cat (Vietnamese Zodiac dictates this year as Cat, not Rabbit - don't ask. We just like to be different from the Chinese in this singular zodiac symbol).
First stop was the crowded cafeteria of Langley High School for the Vietnamese New Year Market. Usually this time of year back in the homeland, lots of market goodies ranging from fresh flowers, sweet n' sticky treats, trinkets for kids and household wares are being sold all around. New year time is time for an auspicious new start. He slept through most of the lion dancing while bouncing around in the sling. His godmother/aunt Bac Uyen got him some new threads that he will be showcasing in the next few posts.
