Busan Sand Festival

:

For somebody who does not love the beach, I sure spent a lot of time there this weekend. It started off with a very relaxing evening on Gwagnali Beach Friday night for Mila’s birthday. It was a lot of fun but I was really tired so it was not a late night for me. I love Gwangan Beach, so beautiful at night! Going to have to go back more this summer.


Friday through Sunday was the 6th Annual Sand Festival at Haeundae Beach. On Saturday afternoon I met SaeEun for lunch, then a movie, then exploring the Sand Castles, then dinner with Matt and Tony. It was a really fun day as I haven’t seen her for a while. We saw the new Robin Hood movie which was enjoyable, but I still think Prince of Thieves is much better.

On Sunday Chad called me up and so I met him and some of his friends at Haeundae Beach which was nice. In typical Andrew fashion I had so much sun screen on that I think I ended up whiter then when I arrived. After a quick dinner at a terrific sandwich store (Brucella’s I think?) we went to watch the Busan International Dance Festival. There were about 6 performances from various dance groups around the world. A lot of them were too arty for me to understand, but the American, Indian and Korean groups all did really interesting performances. The American one was called “Spheres” and was just them doing different things with spherical objects like volleyballs, a tetherball and those large exercise balls.

Another thing that I thought was interesting was that just down the beach from where we were (as well as thousands of other people enjoying life) the G20 Finance Sumit was going on discussing all about the world’s problems these days. Not a protester in sight…hope Canada’s $800 Million security is worth it….

Its so nice to live in a city that always has things going on! Next weekend is the Eobang festival where I’ll be participating with Team Trinity in a rafting race!
