Last year Kat and I went to the Cherry Blossom Festival and it was a good time. Last year we went on a Sunday night-- this year we went on a Saturday night. This year was not nearly as peaceful as last's. It's funny how checking out the cherry blossoms should be a peaceful experience, but you get a few thousand people together, all trying to have a peaceful experience, and the peaceful atmosphere dissipates. It's something about stepping into too many people's photos and getting hit by too many elbows. It wasn't terrible, and a good time was had, but my God, look at that crowd.
