Chinatown Lantern Festival

I did my performance with Noah. I also got some good video and was running all around, and even jumped in on a performance with the Kung Fu Federation. My friend took the picture. Looking at it, I can't help but think that I look like the stereotypical Hung Gar old man at the park. Which is funny because I don't even do Hung Gar, and if you had seen the video of the thing I did at films at the gate... you would put me in a different category, of like goofball dad. I have to go through all the footage which takes some time for me so that will all have to wait for later posts.

Wen-ti Tsen's Home town was also down there. 



It's going to be there tomorrow too. There was a lot going on and a lot of (hopefully) great video that I got.

Here's a picture from the exhibit which was literally right where the audience for the performances were. It was pretty cool how there was this whole festival going on in the park, but the stores and businesses and parking spaces were not as affected except for one street. It just made it easier to go to dinner afterward. The seemed a lot more local too. I was telling a story of the lion dance in English but then I was looking at the audience like "Dude I need to tell this in Chinese." Which I sort of did... but my Chinese story telling wasn't as good. That's something I need to remedy. But I practice telling that story in English like three times a week so that's going to be difficult.
