Popping in real quick to post my runs. Will be back to do maths later. Got up Wednesday morning, and pushed myself out of bed this morning. Spent 4 hours on the phone getting MNSSHP tickets yesterday - didn't get them until after 10pm! It was worth a late start this morning. Wednesday - 37 minutes, today - 31 minutes.

Color updates! Congrats to our newly pink people - Elizabeth Smith and BethisLucy! Our whole team moved up to pink as well. Meanwhile, my early mornings have gotten me to orange, with Sophy1996 right at my heels. I'm wondering when TwilightSparkle is going to show up and blow us all away.

One of the coolest AAPI celebrations at Disney is the Lunar New Year Festival at Disneyland. I've always dreamed of going to this event, where the characters are all in their festival red costumes:

here's Tigger:

There's Mulan's special parade, and performances:

It's on my trip schedule for Feb 2022, I'll keep my fingers crossed that I actually make it out there to celebrate!

We went to the Lunar New Year during a quick visit to DLR in January 2020. It was the year of the Rat, and Disney had fun turning that into Mice!

Has anyone seen ljcrochet around the boards? I'm worried about her. We haven't seen her here in our group in awhile. I sent a pm, but no reply.

With folks starting to turn Rajah Orange, let's take a look at the Maharajah Jungle Trek at Animal Kingdom, home to WDW's tigers.

The Asia section of Animal Kingdom is set in the mythical kingdom of Anandapur. The Jungle Trek takes you through magnificent ruins of the rajahs' hunting palace--be sure to look for the murals depicting long-ago tiger hunts. Fortunately, the tigers survived the hunts and now rule the ruins. The Jungle Trek also features many other Asian animals, including komodo dragons, bats, and a fascinating aviary.

Here's an article from WDW Magazine listing 5 Wild Facts about the Jungle Trek.

There are six living subspecies of tigers--how many can you name?

Amur (Siberian)
Bengal
Indochinese
Malayan
South China
Sumatran
