Wonderful photo and text. Kind of makes me think of the US's tenuous relations with some folks on the other side of the world.

Happy 4th!

Oh, this is wonderful.. one does have to be aware of dragons and such. I got to see fireworks outside my balcony; one of the joys of a third floor view! Thanks for stopping to visit my blog.

For the Chinese, dragon is a terrible animal, when it is his year (we are now in the year of the ox) it is terrible, because when the dragon wakes up, the mountain, under which he was asleep, rumbles
