Welcome to another week of Travel Photo Thursday. I cannot believe that another month has almost passed us by! This week I traveled from Chiang Mai back to Korea. I am officially back to the land of the “winter woolies” …brrrr, and being pulled in many directions. The new semester starts on Monday, so lots to do. Tomorrow we welcome our Freshman class of 2013. All of those young, eager little minds are just thirsting for knowledge :) However, that can wait for tomorrow.
Right now I want to share a couple of shots from Chinese New Years Day in Chiang Mai. These were taken at Thapae Gate just prior to start of the parade.
To join in the Travel Photo Thursday fun simply post a photo on your blog. Return here and place your link in the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post.
Please post a link to a post featuring a travel photo, not simply a link to your blog.

This little guy was mesmerized by what was happening…
This is what he was watching. Maybe not the best photo, but I wanted you to see how far off the ground the top of the pole actually was. I wondered where mom was. I can’t imagine letting a kid be hoisted up a pole that far off the ground!
And finally, a dragon dance at the top of the pole…
This all happened prior to the parade, and was great fun to watch!
Chiang Mai has a large Chinese community, and they go all out for Chinese New Year. In addition to the parade, there’s a variety of entertainment throughout the weekend. Of course, there is no end to the delicious food you can sample. Check your lunar calendar for next years dates. I’ll probably see you there!
Just in case you missed last week’s Travel Photo Thursday.
