Happy Year of the Dragon

It's Chinese New Year and the celebrations started with a real bang yesterday (lots of fire crackers and fire works) and will continue well into the night tonight.  I am excited to say that I am indeed a Dragon so this is apparently going to be my year.  I share this honor with my fellow Canuck and awesome blogger Maria Foley at I was an Expat Wife who has some great detail today on her blog about Chinese horoscopes. Have a look!

Yesterday, my friend Thanya took me around to her friend's house to join in their celebrations so I thought I'd just take you through a pictorial journey...

Thanya makes her offering



Praying for good luck in 2012
She has 11 children but she's willing to adopt one more!
Thanya's always ready to teach me about Thai Culture - she tweets @thanyatravel

Have a wonderful day and I'll be back soon...I've got two books I want to review for you... The Sewing Circles of Herat and Perking the Pansies - Jack and Liam move to Turkey but I'm not sure which one will come first.  Any requests?
