Greetings from Indonesia!
So it’s been about 3 days since arriving here, and already it’s been so filled with many new and exciting experiences! In several areas throughout Asia, New Years is celebrated on the 19th of February, and 2015 is the year of the Goat!
Lion Dances are a traditional ceremony to watch every Chinese New Year… They are thought to symbolize good luck and fortune! This was super cool to see, and it was really fun getting to “feed” special red envelopes to the lions with money inside. We also got to enjoy eating a delicious lunch buffet which had all kinds of Chinese food!
Thanks so much for reading!
