Cherry Blossom Festival

Andrew and I wanted to go see the Cherry Blossom Festival. They have the festivals all around Korea, the most famous one in Seoul. We were told that we'd see more people than flowers... so we decided to stay in Suwon and go to the festival here. Again, I'd say that we saw more people than trees and flowers, but it was still pretty! 

Festival food!

Andrew with the South Korean flag! 

Magnolia trees!

This is a memorial to the missing soldiers in the sunken ship. 

More festival food! 

This is a very popular food in Korea. It is meat on a stick! I'm not sure what kind of meat, but it is edible. 

I'm not sure what this street food is. 

That's a lot of sausages!

These massive pots are kimchi pots. This is where they ferment the cabbage for kimchi!

Kimchi pots!

More kimchi pots!

Do you ever run out of traffic cones?

Street vendor food.

Outside cooking!

We started walking away from the festival. We walked for quite a while and found ourselves at Suwon Station. We went up to the top of the station, and I took a couple of pictures from the windows. 

Sooo congested! Check out all those tall buildings in the back. Those are all apartment buildings.
