Old Faithful / Loh Wah Kiu

Old Faithful sometime in the summer of 2007.

Last week I met a retired Chinese man who had recently immigrated to the US. He had been to Yellowstone National Park earlier this year and was not overly impressed with it. I've only been to Yellowstone once and was amazed at what I saw (and was surprised by what he said). It got me to wondering about the Loh Wah Kiu who worked for decades in the US toiling in a restaurant or laundry who never had an opportunity to see any of our National Parks. Instead they worked long hours, raised children and sent them to college, very much like Old Faithful.
