Hirofumi Matsuzaki attended an art tour at Busan

Hi! This is Hiro. Last weekend I attended an art tour at Busan with other people from art projects all over Kyushu. I was surprised that the plane only took 40 minutes. Busan is so near!

I arrived at night and called my contact Sim, who told me to phone again once I got a taxi, so I went out of the airport and the drivers started calling me into their cabs. I rode one of them and called Sim, but there was no reply and there I was, riding a taxi with no destination… I called many times but there was no way to talk to my friend. After 10 very tense minutes I remembered the hotel’s name which was a big relief. And of course, my fare was more expensive than expected…
