Cherry Blossoms came and went May 19, 2013 - 6:44pm
The Cherry Blossom season came and went again. I actually went to the exact same places and did the exact same things as last year. It doesn't really bother me. It was a nice way to reflect on all the things I had done since then, and all the things that have changed. I bet you thought I was about to go into some detail about that, but I wasn't.
We actually went a week prior to the actual festival, which means we couldn't get into the naval academy and some things weren't set up. But for whatever reason the actual cherry blossom festival occurred basically after they had all fallen down already. So it was better to go when we went.

So when we went to Busan the first thing the lady told us was that we would have to go on the waiting list. So I decided that was good enough, we waited for 40 minutes, only to be told that there was no space and that if we wanted to go at 3:00pm we could (it was 11am at that time). So we decided not to do any of that and just change our plan and go to Seoul. We walked back to the subway and was attacked by a Jehova's Witness. I don't mean attacked in the traditional sense but you get the gist. ...Read More
