Saga International Balloon Fiesta 2007
On the second of November, me and 9 other International Students went together to Saga to watch the ballons at this event. It was a 2 hour trip from Oita to Fukuoka by Bus, and 1 hour from Fukuoka to Oita. We left at 5.30am by taxi to town and took the bus to Fukuoka Tenjin Bus Station.?The station was inside Solaria Plaza, 3rd floor, so it never felt like leaving a shopping mall to get on a bus. On the way, in the bus we saw lots of balloons flying ahead, in the train we saw only one balloon still flying. When we got there we were so unlucky cause there were no balloons flying. Until the end of the day, the weather was too windy for the balloons to fly, so it’s too bad we didn’t get to see any balloon lift off.
But we had fun sightseeing, taking photos, buying postcards and souvenirs. On the way back we had dinner in Fukuoka at a restaurant. I had Crab Rice, Mushroom and Sashimi. It was a very delicious meal. At the end of the day we were all exhausted..
