Chinese New Year Celebrations

Eggs Benedict

Eggs Benedict

Chinese New Year Celebrations have started!  Which means for us NO SCHOOL!   Recently Shanghai has been having some nice weather and pollution, so Jason and I decided to take advantage of it by going to brunch and walking around the French Concession and Bund last weekend.   Our brunch at La Cocina was delicious. We weren’t planning on going to La Cocina but it was a good choice!  Jason ordered the Eggs Benedict which was very rich and savory!

The rest of our week was pretty easy since we only had 3 days of school!  On Wednesdays we had a full school Chinese New Year Celebration.   The lower school started with an assembly that included traditional Chinese music and acrobats!   Then the entire school gathered on the field to see the Lion and Dragon dance.   It was pretty amazing to see the dance and hear the drums.  Definitely something unique!   IMG_2457 IMG_2456 IMG_2454 IMG_2453
