Change is inevitable and it's happening all around us. Usually change is to better a situation, better a city or better a business that may be struggling. Sometimes changes happens right in front of your eyes and you don't even realize it.

If you were to do a quick drive by, you'd be even more shocked to find out that Dragon wall is physically not there anymore. 2025 E 2nd St in Casper is the address, if you're wondering that's on the southeast corner of 2nd & Beverly.

I've lived in Casper for nearly a year now and always found it odd that there were only a handful of Chinese restaurants in town and two of them were right across the street from each other. Usually when I order for pickup, it's always Chopstix that I choose. I always was going go pull into Drag Wall and eat there...then I noticed that it was just a building that was being worked on.

Everyone's schedules are full and busy and we may not all drive through this intersection on a daily basis, but last week I was shocked that I didn't notice a HUGE difference.
