Grateful for Other Cultures

A first for me and my family occurred tonight: we attended a Vietnamese New Year celebration. A wonderful woman named Thi has a Vietnamese restaurant in downtown Rock Hill and she invited Our friend Alex to bring his family and another family to join in on the celebration. We were joined by other friends of her restaurant as well as 15 teachers from other countries who received a grant to come to the U.S. and share/learn with other teachers at Winthrop University – this group was hosted by the mayor of Rock Hill.

The two times I have been to Thi’s, the food has been incredible (Thi cooks it and will bring us what she thinks we will like) and the service is always personal and attentive. Tonight, she outdid herself with a New Year’s festival complete with dancing dragons and tigers. The kids loved it and had never seen anything like it before. Very cool. Very grateful.
