chinese new year

a good hard 3 hour group ride on saturday morning in philly with a bunch of riders from guys, bike addict, and a lot of other teams that i don't know and then an easy 2 hours on sunday to recover.

sunday afternoon, as we were walking around philly, near chinatown, we heard some firecrackers and soon realized that it was a chinese new year celebration. we stopped and watched for a while as the lion dancers moved from business to business scaring away evil spirits and bringing good luck in return for a small donation (in this case to the chinese youth organization that was performing the dances).
