So it turns out that everything is by season in this country. Everything from the fruits and vegetables to Kim chi. I just recently saw real lemons since I've been here. First time in 6 months I've seen real lemons. Crazyness.
Kim's sister and brother in law were in town for the week and we spent their last night going to Carne Station. $22 for all you can eat and drink. You make your own food and drinks. I took advantage of the drinking part that night. And after Carne Station we went to the batting cages... there were no helmets. No helmets and drunk people... not a safe combination... no one was hurt though. I gracefully did not hit a single ball
This weekend was the Lantern Festival for Buddha's birthday. A whole weekend of festivities. I went on the Sunday. I got to make a small lotus lantern, lots of fun. Saw a lot of lanterns and lotus's that day... fake lotus's. I want to see a real one. There were so many booths set up, such a wonderful experience. There were so many foreigners there, it was madness.
There was this parade, such a great parade... except for the fact that it was like 4 hours long. The first hour and a half was great... then it got really boring. There were fire breathing dragons, Buddha's of all shapes and sizes... and lots of LANTERNS. Hence the Lantern Festival.
I took about 200 pictures I think that day. Yea, it really was a great day.
Next week BUSAN... finally.
