Children's Day is May 5th--same as Cinco de Mayo...so NO SCHOOL! We had originally planned to go to a Cinco de Mayo party in Seoul but it was cancelled:( A while ago, a South Korean ship went down in the Ocean so certain districts cancelled all festivities to honor those killed.
I headed to Seoul with my friend Caitlin. We met our new friend, Amanda, at the bus stop. The nice things about here is that you can just strike up a conversation with a foreigner and become friends pretty easily...which would be a little weird at home. I think this is more common outside of Seoul...I haven't found the foreigners are quite as friendly...I'm guessing because there just are so many more of them...it's more like at home.
First we went for Mexican Food and it was DELICIOUS...I had really been craving it and as I write this blog, it makes me want to hop on the bus to Seoul just to savor the taste.
