Cherry Blossom Festival

...with not so many cherry blossoms.  A month ago we all headed up to the Han River in Seoul to visit the cherry blossom festival.  Unfortunately there were not as many cherry blossoms as we had hoped but a good time was had by all.  It was the first weekend we had really seen the sun since spring and we were all happy for the nice weather.

Does it really say that?

Read closely for a good laugh, about the "sense" and "beauty"

silly fun!

random coconut in the subway on the way home, perfect ending :)

Samgyeopsal is a popular meal in Korea.  A fatty pork belly meat that is cooked over a grill and dipped into spicy pepper paste.  It is delicious.  Also on the grill is kimchi, raw garlic, onions, and mushrooms. YUM!

Magic concoction of soju, beer and coke.. yuck!

SO many adventures.. and NO updates.

Lets start from the top :).  In March, we had a three day weekend.  So a coworker and I headed south to Busan.  One of the beaches here in Korea.  The weather was dreary but it was so nice to get away and put my feet in the sand.  Here are some highlights of the trip.
On our way, KTX high speed train, very comfortable


Haeundae Beach

Yonggungsa Temple

Offerings left by visitors.

Busan Tower

Love locks left by many.

Ariel had never been to the ocean before :) So glad I got to share it with her!

Stinky fish markets.

We had so much fun and it was so nice to get away.  It was nice that we went when it was cooler because when summer comes everyones says the beaches are COVERED in beach umbrellas.  Koreans are not very fond of getting any sort of sun, so they cover up anytime they can.  I hope to go back when it gets warmer and maybe even go for a swim.

Trick Eye Museum

This past weekend I went to the trick eye museum with some of my coworkers.  They have tons of optical illusion paintings that you can take pictures with and it looks like you are in them :)
