Making the Ordinary, Extraordinary
It`s that time of year again! The Cherry Blossom Festival is in full swing now. Full of dancing, food, and other entertainment, it is the highlight of any Spring D.C. tourist`s visit.
I am so lucky, to live in D.C. To be able to walk around campus,or down the street, and see the treasured cherry blossoms. I`m just so very privileged! If you get a chance, try to visit Japan or D.C. when the cherry blossoms are blooming. It is a gorgeous sight!
The Japanese have festivals and picnics to celebrate the blooming of these gorgeous trees. There is a festival around me as well! The Cherry Blossom Festival attracts thousands of visitors each year to bask in the blooms and enjoy the Japanese embassy and other groups join together to create this rather humongous event. It is always fun for the tourists, though some locals tend to dread it. (Mainly because we already have the worst traffic congestion and accidents in the country without any extra gawkers to plug up the flailing system!)
