Tet Dragon Dance

For several days, parades called dragon dances and unicorn dances would spring up,  run a few blocks,  and then disappear before we could get to them. This time,  we correctly guessed a turn it would make,  dashed a few blocks sideways,  and caught it as it came by.

Often, especially in Cho Lon, we'd see dancers loading up in buses and trucks or, already loaded up, go driving by.  "Dragon Dance",  I'd say and our guide,  Tien,  would correct "Unicorn Dance".  Being a quick study,  next time I'd announce "Unicorn Dance" and he'd reply  "Dragon Dance".
