    MoCCA festival is truly great. Since it sells out it exhibition space, it makes me wonder what's bubbling under this proto-establishment. Don't forget to buy some comics.

    If you decide to go, get there early before it gets too hot. The air conditioning works fine on the lower floors, but the 7th floor gets really steamy.
