Year of the pig

***If you looked at this video and it was only 2 seconds long, then you saw it with technical errors. I think these have been overcome and the video should be about 15 seconds. I promise those extra 13 seconds add quite a bit.

2007 is the year of the pig according to the Chinese New Year. Although I failed to post about it at the time, it was a big celebration here in Cambodia. In fact, many businesses closed their doors for up to 10 days. At the end of the celebration (and in the beginning and middle) Dragon Dancers popped up all over the city and country. This particular video is from the last day of Chinese New Years and happened directly in front of my house– starting at 7am on a Sunday!

*** I couldn’t get youtube to upload my video. Anyone have any experience with youtube malfunctions? Or could it just be a firewall issue?

    We saw Dragon Dancers in NYC recently in Chinatown but nothing as elaborate as the video. Very neat!
