Every morning, I drive by these two flags. Always gives me pause. The one on the left represents #SouthVietnam. My family’s native country no longer exists. Alas, there she blows, high and mighty next to #OldGlory… #seattle #vietnameseamericans #vietnamwar #rainiervalley #southseattle (at Rainier Valley, Seattle, Washington)

From the #WingLuke’s top floor. Among the things I like about this pic: cool contrast between #Chinatown and #Seattle’s skyscrapers, to the right are apartments with laundry hanging outside and on the ground level is a group of old Asian men playing games around a makeshift table. To their right is a guy reading his newspaper. A few aspects of this neighborhood will never change, I hope.  (at International District / Chinatown)
The family association room at the #FreemanHotel, where countless #Asian immigrants first found refuge, friends and food. #wingluke  (at Wing Luke Museum)
See that building over yonder with the top-floor unit painted in red? That’s the Lee Family Association that #BruceLee’s family belonged to here in #Seattle’s #Chinatown. #wingluke  (at Wing Luke Museum)
Staircase at the historic and long-vacant #freeman hotel at the #wingluke. I can imagine how busy this place used to be when it housed new immigrants.  (at Wing Luke Museum)
