A New Kind of New Year

A New Kind of New Year

Looking back, Chinese New Year has never been something I celebrated or even knew much about. I typically knew it was happening from the calendar alert in my phone and making sure to get orders in before the well deserved multi-week shutdown at the Chinese factories (in reference to my actual job).

After taking the hot, hot, hot NYC subway to the park, I found relief under the shade of a tree, wishing I was one of the dozens of turtles swimming in the pond. Thankfully, the park is close to some great shopping on 5th ave. where all of the stores have air conditioning. Perfect excuse to find my man a comfy seat while I peruse all the summer sales.
