It is always on the SECOND Sunday of the New Year — which this year started on February 5, 2019.
Yes, I have confirmed. It is all set. Sunday, February 17, 2019 — Boston Chinatown.
Good weather. So, it should be a great day out.
Happy Chinese New Year.

The Chinese New Year starts after the 2nd New Moon — following the Winter Solstice. So, its start varies from year-to-year.
It usually continues for at least 2-weeks (in the U.S.).
Last year Chinese New Year started February 16th. So it is pretty early this year.
The festivities in Chinatown, Boston — i.e., the Dragon Parades etc. — per my recockning will be on Sunday, February 27, 2019. It is usually on the 2nd (and last) Sunday of that 2 week period and that is the 25th. I will keep you updated.
In the meantime, have a ball. Snuggle up o a pig.
NO post-processing whatsoever.

We went to Boston, on Saturday, January 12, 2019, for the last day of ‘Durgin Park‘. But, given we are members (of long-standing) of the ‘Museum of Science‘ it would have been crazy not to spend some time there as well. And that is exactly what we did, and as ever it was worthwhile and rewarding. Plus, as members we get discounted parking; $22 for 9-hours (which by Boston standards is not too bad).
I took more pictures — many more. But, just wanted to share a few with you. Enjoy.

I am not sure whether this is a new exhibit or whether it never fully registered with me previously. We go to the ‘Museum of Science‘ at least thrice a year, and have done for years and years. So, not much I haven’t seen.
But, I saw this yesterday. I knew what it was as soon as I saw it. Reading the accompanying sign only confirmed what I knew.
Neat. But, I am not 100% happy with the depiction. They seemed to have it garbled. It was unlikely to have been a ruin, in such disrepair, when folks were still living there! So, don’t call it ‘the ruins’ and show people still climbing it with ladders.
Also doesn’t explain why it is called the ‘White House‘. Yes, you can just about see the white building at the back. They believe it was painted white to reflect heat.
Well I have a LOT of posts on this blog about this ‘White House‘.
So, if you are interested just do a search on ‘White House Canyon‘.
