Chinese New Year - Year of the Rat
Hiya everyone and Happy Chinese New Year! It's the year of the Rat and year 4718 on the Chinese calendar.
Sorry that it's been a few days since I've been on. In those few days I had gone out on a short trip to Vegas then to Reno and back.
Las Vegas was lots of fun that was had with Jet & Chaplin. But since we still had to head up to Reno we were limited to just spending the day together...
And as usual, Vegas was done up to the nines and all decked out for the Chinese New Year.

Being in Vegas for the short time that we had only made me eager to book another trip before too long!
And then we were off to Reno and back. And to do it in a less than 24 hour period.
After arriving and with a short nights rest we were able to get to Reno and the on the road back to Vegas. *I had to personally do a pick up in Reno and had no other business there.
The road between Las Vegas and Reno is lacking any and all types of excitement of interest.
However due to me missing a turn on the way back my gps had rerouted and took me down a gravel to pavement road that would lead me back. Where lo and behold I saw something on the road...
With a "Mamma Mia!" I slowly pulled up along side the animal to grab a few pictures.
I was so excited to see the Donkey (c)travelincousins.com

There were a few more in the little herd (c)travelincousins.com
And then since I missed the turn that meant that I also missed the next rest room break. Leaving me with this very odd and only other option for as far as the eye and gps could see.

Totally weird for my taste (c)travelincousins.com
We made it back to Vegas and then after a short while had made it back to SoCal.
Plenty of running around yesterday and today we shall do our part in celebrating Chinese New Year. Which means that I put a menu together, hit up the specialty markets and then go about my annual attempt at trying my hand at cooking a big asian feast!
Cheerio, -Travelin' Tanya
