    WATCHING THE PARADE ON TV MAYBE CONFY AND PERHASP CONVENIENT, BUT THERE`S NOTHING LIKE BEING THERE IN BODY AND SPIRIT. THE HEAT, THE SMELLS, THE SWEAT TRICKLING DOWN THE FACES OF THE PARTICIPANTS. (IT`S A LONG ROUTE). I HAD A BLAST.

    There really isn’t! I was out there last year and it was great to see the sights, hear the sounds. Were you part of the parade or a spectator? – Elizabeth Chou
