Happy Lunar New Year

 Madame X and I on Saturday attended the Lunar New Year celebration at Divine Word College in Epworth, Iowa. Divine Word, primarily a seminary for missionary priests-to-be, has a large contingent of international students -- most of them from Asia.

We are members of the Divine Word FAN (Friends Across Nations) Club, matched with a couple of students -- Joseph from Uganda and Yen from Vietnam.

Though the celebration welcoming the Year of the Dragon is special for the Asian students, no Divine Word student was excluded. The program started with an African drums number, with our friend Joseph (far left, photo below) playing a key role. (He returned to this stage for another number, when this photo was taken.)

If was an enjoyable evening of great food and fun entertainment.
