Seollal Weekend Events, part 1

It's been an interesting weekend and Lunar New Year, so far.

My Canadian friend, Anne, and I decided to head over to do some siteseeing this weekend, since we had originally planned to go to Osaka, Japan. Well, that turned out to be rather expensive; and hearsay on taking the hydrofoil to Hakata, Japan from Busan made us cringe. So needless to say, we picked out a few places to visit in Daegu, and had a blast in the midst of our mini expeditions.

I just have but a few minutes to post before I head out to meet the parents of the kid that I tutor at Ariana Hotel. We'll be celebrating the New Year with a dinner; they invited me to partake on eating out with them since, well, networking and building relationships is kind of a necessity (as I'm finding out) while living here in Korea.

Here are some fabulous photos I took of our Sunday trip to check out a temple (near Yeongjin Junior College) and later, the Gyesan Cathedral, just East of Banwoldang Intersection downtown. It was a crisp night, as we perused the streets. More updates tonight! ~ Chelsea
