Sunset South of Boise

So far south of Boise, this might be in the town of Kuna. Clear, cold, brittle winter evening.Most Boise views focus north, on the mountains. Desert is to the south.

Japanese New Year Celebration in Boise

Japanese New Year was celebrated last weekend at the Dick Eardley Senior Center. Pounding the mochi is a traditional activity. Messy and really fun!

 Happy New Year from Japanese school students.

This is kadomatsu, a traditional bamboo and pine arrangement that is supposed to attract good luck for the year.
The celebration included music, readings and a giant potluck. I have no idea what this soup was, except to say that it was delicious.

Boise Grows Up

Boise has a bodega across from City Hall now. Bodegas feel like a big city "thing." This is the first of two planned for downtown. There is also one on the Bench. While these don't look like the ones I've seen in New York City, they are a welcome addition. Now, they just need to get resident cats :)
