Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside

phonto (1)

Something inside me changes every time I travel. A new experience makes me appreciate life’s beauty and I feel so lucky given the chance to experience a new culture. The curiosity in me is satisfied when I learn about the history of the place and how the people coped up with the challenges thrown their way. We may come from different countries, different religions, different beliefs and cultures but we are all the same in a way – trying to find that one thing that makes our world a better place.

Chinese new year is also known as the Spring Festival and is the oldest and most important festival in China. Dragon dances are common for such a festival. The face of the dragon together with the sound of the drums and cymbals are used to ward off bad luck and evil spirits. Let us join our Chinese brothers and sisters all over the world in welcoming the year of the snake. Gong Xi Fa Cai!
