Merry Buddhamas! (Korean Holiday! – Buddha's Birthday)

Today is Siddhartha Gautama’s birthday.  Who’s Siddhartha Gautama?  He’s Buddha.  Korea has made his birthday a national holiday.  The city is decorated in a very neat way, with lots of lanterns hanging and directing people to temples.  It’s definitely cool.  I’ll write more about it later, but just to let you know, I have a 3 day weekend, and I am going to have a blast this weekend…

  1. Update, I’ve spent the whole day in a car. When the country has a holiday, the whole country decides to drive to the countryside. That naturally causes traffic.

    Not happy…
