Painting

I finally managed to hang up this painting in our apartment. My student gave it to me two years ago and now I have this beautiful memory to help me remember my time as a Middle School teacher. The new year has begun with renovations, and the first step was hanging this painting. I think it looks lovely.

Seoul Lantern Festival

Not only did the Seoul Lantern Festival kick off today, it’s also Peppero Day. For those of you who don’t know what Peppero Day is, I’ll explain. It’s basically a day when people give each other chocolate covered sticks, called “Peppero.” Usually school kids give them to each other and their teachers, but the tradition has spread and now adults buy them for their friends/ partners as well. I recieved several boxes of Peppero today from my students and I decided to nibble on some while observing the display at the Lantern Festival.
Cheonggyecheon was bursting with colours from all the beautiful lanterns. A concert was held by the river, which included performances by Rain, Wondergirls, Ivy and many more.
Seats were available for people who pre-registered on-line, but I managed to convince a tourism official to let me in the guest area. I was quite proud of my accomplishment. It was a wonderful way to spend the evening.

Today I went for a hike up Inwang Mountain with my friend Elise. It was a total body workout, and I hope to do it again soon.

Kimchi Anyone?



Kimchi Anyone?, originally uploaded by Ichigomani.

As I was waiting for the subway this afternoon I saw this advertisement. If you want to make kimchi at home you have to have a kimchi fridge… does it come with the cute model too?

Fortress Wall



Wall View, originally uploaded by Ichigomani.

This is my favourite picture of the day. We got to the top of Inwangsan and finally saw the fortress wall. There was a guard beside me and I get out my camera. I take the picture and get told no pics. Luckily the guard didn’t make me erase this shot.
