Cherry Blossom Mayhem

Right now, I'm packing and emotionally preparing myself to descend upon Kyoto for cherry blossom season.

I heard things can get pretty crazy under the fluffy pinkness this time of year, throngs of people having picnics underneath trees, too much sake, and maybe even a fight or two breaking out...

There's also a storm front going through and a chance all the delicate blossoms will have been blown away by the wind.

In any case, until I get back next week and report on the mayhem, check out an article I recently wrote for BootsNAll travel network.

I have to say, it's kinda funny to think about fights breaking out when people are trying to enjoy cherry blossoms!
