Well, Easter of 2013 found me on a beach in Busan, Korea, celebrating an Indian festival. Go figure. Happy Holi everyone!!
|Ready and waiting for the festival to begin.|
Holi is an Indian festival held every year to welcome the spring. Apparently living in Korea is not a deterrent for such an awesome festival. Let the fun begin!!! I realize I have only been here for a month, but it was weird to see so many foreigners all in one place.
I almost forgot we were in Korea, until someone pointed out that we had become nothing short of a zoo exhibit.
The festival lasted from 11am until 4pm, and there was a solid wall of Koreans lining the beach watching the entire time. I am sure we are in a ton of random photos. “Look at these pictures I got of the crazy waygooks!”

Some of our onlookers appeared less than pleased with the general goings on, you’ll find those people everywhere I think.
But the best part of the day was when we looked over and saw some little old Korean women dancing along with the festival music. It was awesome! I think the woman in purple actually jumped down into the crowd for a bit too.
|A great day at the beach, the sun even came out.|
Needless to say, after dancing for several hours straight on the sand, we were all exhausted.
What a fun day in Busan. Happy Holi everyone!!
