Hangang Yeouido Cherry Blossom Festival
We went to the cherry blossom festival here in Seoul and it was pretty fun. There are several festivals around Korea and even Seoul itself, but the Yeouido Festival is the biggest in Seoul. The weather was a let down because all week long it was sunny and warm and of course the first time in a couple of months we get an extra day off, overcast and windy. But we went with our co-teacher friends and the streets were filled with beautiful pink/white blossoms. The streets were also filled with performers and vendors. The big excitement was Saturday but we wanted to go on our day off and beat the big crowd so we went on Friday. The street behind the National Assembly was filled with people a couple of stages for Saturday’s events and several flower displays. There were also a row of artist that would draw your portrait. Probably not as much festivities but enough to be enjoyable. One of my co-teacher friends Moriah got pulled into a clowning act and Chad made a friend with a musical comedian. We got to see the National Assembly too. So over all it was a fun-flower-filled day!
Oh PS I got my hair cut. I hope you like it. 🙂
