This is another slightly belated post. We visited the Cherry Blossom Festival at Gyeryongsan National Park on April 17. It was another example of how nothing in this country can ever be easy, but, at the end of the day you always walk away saying, “That was a really cool day!” And this one definitely was.
Gyeryongsan can be a bit tricky to get to so we decided to take the subway to the National Cemetery and catch the bus from there for the rest of the trip. Once we reached the bus stop we waited about thirty minutes for the bus which eventually drove straight passed us. It was too full to stop and wouldn’t let anyone else on. Apparently we weren’t the only ones going to the festival that day. Argh. (And thank you to a random Korean woman who recognized that this little group of foreigners couldn’t understand the announcements being made and translated for us.)
