Welcome to another week of Travel Photo Thursday. At the moment I am busy packing to move into a new apartment. It’s amazing how much stuff a person can accumulate in 6 years of living in the same apartment. To think that I arrived in Asia with only two suitcases! We are just over a week away from the festivities for Buddha’s Birthday. The actual day is May 28th this year, however the celebrations begin in Seoul on May 19th with a birthday party and street parade. The Lotus Lantern Festival is one of the biggest events of the year in Seoul, and I will be there again this year. This week I am sharing some my favorite photos from past Buddha birthday celebrations.
