Spring finally came to Korea! On the 8th April, the international students attended the cherry blossom party organised but the Oulami. The cherry blossom, called 벚꽃 in korean, takes place every year between March and May in Korea. It is as beautiful as the cherry blossom in Japan. There are many places where you can see the cherry blossom, and festivals are even organised to celebrate it. At that time of the year, you can see a lot of couples walking down the cherry blossom streets.
The place the Oulami chose for us was the Ansan Mountain, which is located near Myongji University. As it was close to the university, we went by foot.
There were already a lot of people visiting the mountain, to enjoy the cherry blossom. We sat down on the grass and enjoyed the view of cherry blossom before ordering some fried chicken. We played games while listening to music, and spent all the afternoon in the park. After returning to the university, some people went to have a drink together and some went home with their minds full of cherry blossom and their heart full of happiness.
Once again, thanks to Oulami, we enjoyed Korea and what it has to offer.
