Busan Trippin’ Part I

Well it’s a Monday and after this past weekend I really have to stop making “staying out all night, coming back at dawn” a thing. What was supposed to be a Saturday daytrip to Busan ended up being an all night meander through Haeundae, soju sippin’ at seaside, spicy seafood stew-eating shore side. What is sleep even, right?CAM00050

Film Fanatical

This weekend and upcoming week is BIFF, the Busan International Film Festival. I am currently on film overload.  I saw 3 films today and am going back for more tomorrow.  Not only am I going back to watch more movies tomorrow (and some more after work this week), but I’m getting up earlier than I have to for weekdays to do it.
A lot of the films sell out quickly online, but they save a percentage of tickets for each film, for the day of the screening.  As I learned today, if you don’t show up early, you’ll sometimes have to go with your 3rd or 4th choice.
