scuzzi says, “Chinatown of Philadelphia is bigger than the one in Boston but still small compared to the one in NYC. When we arrive, there was a parade that was starting up for the 57th year anniversary of the Republic of China. Why they are celebrating that, I had no clue. I asked mom later and she said it was not the celebration of the Communist state, but the victory of the civil war in China and the organizing of the country into one. And something about forcing the rebels into Taiwan. I guess I should look up the history sometime. =P

Update: i guess i didn’t quite understand mom. =P i looked up the history of the “republic of china” and it is actually known as taiwan now. apparently it was the form of government in china before the civil war of 1949. when the government lost control of the mainland, it was restricted to the small islands of taiwan. you can read the history more here:”
