I wasn't able to run to Yeouido to see those cherry blossoms. I didn't want to go to there as I was sure a million other people would be heading there to see the blossoms, too. I thought of going up Namsan, which was near and had the same cherry blossom trail.
But last weekend, when those millions of cherry blossom fans were about to head to Yeouido by bus, by subway or by car, the clouds opened up and had their own rainy show.
But this weekend, when the sun's out, there may no longer be any cherry blossoms left to enjoy. Those petals have wilted and fallen.
There's always the next spring, you know.
