Dancer at Nom Wah Tea Parlor

I was watching two people put away their bicycles in front of the Nom Wah Tea Parlor in Chinatown, New York, as my husband and I were about to enter. As I took a few photographs, a beautiful young woman came dancing into the frame, did a twirl, and left as quickly as she had come. She was followed by a man who was filming her, apparently shooting a scene in a movie.

We had a wonderful lunch of dim sum and chrysanthemum tea to celebrate my birthday. It was a gorgeous spring day, and we walked for many miles in different neighborhoods of the city.

@casablanca Thanks -- it was a really fun day of mainly walking around the city in the gorgeous weather. I was so delighted by that dancer when she did a twirl right before my eyes.

What an interesting looking shop in terms of colours and textures and the style of writing. I didn't know you could make tea from chrysanthemums! How interesting. Hope you had a lovely day and happy belated birthday wishes.
