Dark rain clouds and a sullen sky made for a pretty melancholy day. Occasional courses of thunder and lightning added to the drama of it all.

The Cherry Blossom Festival was rained out in Japantown. Relieved from my volunteer duty by the advent of water coming down in sheets, I ducked into the Kinokuniya Building for a bit, weaving through masses of young families, Gen Yers and silver-haired elderly folk. Passed by a few people gawking at plastic udon and sushi in a restaurant display case. Fun stuff! My last stop was a crowded Japanese video store, where I flipped through DVDs of Totoro, Cowboy Bebop and classic episodes of Robotech. Ahh, memories.

Spent the rest of the afternoon lazing around watching films. Rainy Saturdays seem to be good for that.
