Boo-ya, Busan

Happy New Year, all! Out with the year of the tiger, in with the rabbit. According to this website, the year of the rabbit, "A placid year, very much welcomed and needed after the ferocious year of the Tiger."

If you're a rabbit, this is how you're described:

"A person born in the year of the Rabbit possesses one of the most fortunate of the twelve animal signs. The Rabbit symbolizes graciousness, good manners, sound counsel kindness and sensitivity to beauty. His soft speech and graceful and nimble ways embody all the desirable traits of a successful diplomat or seasoned politician.

Likewise, a person born under this sign will lead a tranquil life, enjoying peace, quiet and a congenial environment. He is reserved and artistic and possesses good judgment. His thoroughness will also make him a good scholar. He will shine in the fields of law, politics and government.

But he is also inclined to be moody; at such times he appears detached from his environment or indifferent to people.

The Rabbit is extremely lucky in business and monetary transactions. Astute at striking bargains, he can always pop up with a suitable proposal or alternative to benefit himself. His sharp business acumen, coupled with his knack for negotiation, will ensure him a fast rise in any career."

I'm a DRAGON! (Next year) And this dragon is spending the tranquil five day weekend in Busan. It's only an hour and a half bus ride from The Po' and has a lot to offer in terms of tourism, food and nightlife. 

I checked out the aquarium by myself (my friends didn't have any desire to see it) and it was fantastic. The next time I go I WILL be diving with the sharks. I promise. I might have been a little more excited than the small Korean children to see all the fish and other sea life. Unlike them, though, I waited patiently for my turn to look and touch the starfish and whatever else there was to touch (my Konglish wasn't able to translate...). 

Also checked out Yongungsa temple. Kind of like European cathedrals, once you've seen one temple you've seen them all. But not this one! It's built on cliffs overlooking the sea. Quite beautiful. 

My fab vacation isn't over yet so more insight and pictures to come!
