We left bright and early in the morning. We headed to the train station and took the 3 hour train to Jinhae. As per usual, I did not sleep very much the night before and then did not sleep at all on the train.
We arrived in Jinhae safely. The first thing I saw was the picture to the left, so naturally, I took a picture with it.
We hopped on the bus that would take us to the festival. I knew the bus would take us immediately to the bus terminal, where we could buy our tickets back to Seoul.
Unfortunately, there was a lot of traffic and we decided to just walk. It was about 70 degrees, which was the first time I'd actually felt warm in months.
We walked to the train station in Jinhae. We planned to buy bus tickets, because it was a bit cheaper, but we did not head back immediately to the bus station, which was a mistake.
We got distracted by all the cherry blossoms which were beautiful.
|And a pig|
They were selling some swords and awesome bows and arrows.
More blossoms of course.
Aka very horrifying.
We arrived at the train station. The entire Korean train computer system was down. Aka, we could not buy tickets because there was no system to connect to. The internet website and everything was down...We asked the guy, "Well what should we do?" and he said "I don't know."
There were no trains or buses out of the town until 6AM the next morning...
We stopped at the above cafe (with the deer) because Ben needed a quick nap. Then, we continued walking at night.
Then, we got cold and wandered over to Mcdonalds and hung out until we needed to go to the bus station.
Next time, we will always buy a return ticket...We learned our lesson, that assuming that all festivals are like the Andong Mask Festival, where you can easily get a return ticket, is not quite the smartest thing to do.
