Silent disco

Later on Saturday, after soju and lions, we went to eat some noodle soup (I still can’t believe you pay 4 bucks for so much food). And for a good digestion we played in arcade room, where Luna has the annoying habit to last longer than me in Time Crisis. Shame on me. But after we ran out of money, we went back to the streets and came across a silent disco right in front of us. Way to cool, not to join them. Here is a short video. You must enable sound to really enjoy that video.

SmackSoft live at Pentaport Festival

This saturday we went to Pentaport Festival. It was my first Korean festival. Although Luna swore not all festivals are like that, there were seats in front of the scene.

Honestly that looked pretty weird, there were no even a single food shop !

But much more strange is when I got to the gate for my next flight and got surrounded by Koreans, a different ethnicity than me, and yet I had such a strong “home” feeling. Anyway after a long trip I ended up safely in Incheon airport (they didn’t notice my massive food importation) where Luna’s father and brother were waiting for me. They told me Luna couldn’t come as she was sick. Pretty bad start for my stay here. But then I felt someone giggling behind. She actually was recording me from far away. Anyway I was glad to arrive there as I was sure the weather would pretty hot and much more stable than in Switzerland. Not disappointed, it was hot enough.
