Sakura Festival

Whose bright idea was it to go to DC during the cherry blossom festival? It seems preposterous that anyone would think up such an idea. It was madness, I tell you, madness! The traffic! The billions of camera-toting tourists! The lines to even get onto the escalators to take you down to the metro station! All to see some trees that we could have actually seen at home. But really, despite the maddening crowds, it was fun to play tourist for a weekend. And the cherry blossoms themselves, in addition to being very pretty, have a pretty interesting historical and cultural significance. It's all about the ephemera people. And that's something we all need to be aware of.

There was a japanese street festival going on saturday. And by street festival they mean rows of outdoor booths you could not get to. I would have liked to have checked out the wares, but simply could not shove my way anywhere near them. Once the street fest was nearly over, it was a bit more accessible, so we grabbed some greasy street fest food.
Meat on a stick and greasy ass noodles. For when you're hungry and have been walking around all day, it totally hits the spot. The chicken could have had more flavor (I saw them slathering on some teriyaki type liquid on em but I couldn't really taste any of that), but it was still good, even if simple. The noodles were good too, super greasy, just enough flavor. I love me some street food!
