Happy Chinese New Year! The past two years haven’t been ideal and I’m hoping that the year of the Rabbit will bring some luck and prosperity my way. On another note, these days I couldn’t be more proud to be of Asian descent and I’m fascinated by these photos of my fellow people exploring and creating a brave new world.
