Dear flowerbossa,

Were you at the opening? It must have been very emotional to see Yong Joon's creation in front of you. I really love the tranquility of the museum setting. It must be nice to enjoy a cup of tea there after viewing all these amazing artworks. Thanks for sharing your pictures.

love ..... Jaime

Konnichwa Jaime-san,

Yes, I was at the opening - you are right, seeing YJ's work (and the video showing him AT work!) was more moving than I expected.

It was too bad the tea room was not open for the visitors who came on the first day (probably because there were too many people there), but I was able to enjoy coffee and cake there on the second day. The lady there is very kind and showed us YJ's seat (they have the chair marked on the back^^) The lacquer table set is very beautiful. I'm sure you would enjoy being there!
