Racially Charged Post...Just Sayin'

I love me some Asian folks. I really find their culture fascinating. Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese, Japanese....I love the food. Oh and I love how much they love our culture.

Our family was honored to ride a mule drawn wagon in the Steer Herding through the streets of downtown San Antonio. Pretty sure the kids and I were famous by the end of the parade. Well, we at least felt like we were famous.

Okay, so I digress. While the wagons were hooking up and loading up, a lovely Asian couple (obviously tourists from another country) were walking through the staging grounds. Not only could they not stop smiling but they were so friendly and just down right thrilled by the happenings around them.

The people in the staging area were all dressed in what was authentic 1800s cowboy outfits, civil war uniforms, Native American dress (I wouldn't say costumes because they are so much more then that), and just modern day cowboy garb. Well that Asian couple loved every minute of it and the cowboys and cowgirls were thrilled to show them around and answer their questions.

The greatest part about this couple was how they actually walked along the entire parade route and never seemed to tire of the westerness of it all.

I am certain if I were lucky enough to attend a wonderful celebration in their country I would be equally enamored by the difference in the culture and the excitement.
