The light fantastic

In anticipation of Buddha's birthday on Thursday, the Lotus Lantern Festival was in full swing this weekend, culminating in a parade yesterday. Hundreds of thousands of lights, lanterns, floats, and people moved through downtown to Jogyesa Temple. Jogyesa is the largest and most important of Seoul's temples; these lanterns flowed from the temple roof over the main courtyard, providing more colour to a very colourful day.
