After nearly a month’s hiatus (the reason being twofold – illness on my part, and the fact that I am writing less about my classes to avoid duplication with last year’s posts – the text book is the same therefore the class material is the same) I am happy to inform you about the Mugeodong Cherry Blossom Festival on Saturday.
The highlight of the festival was when the over-excitable MC dragged kids up on stage to do the Gangnam Style dance. Other than that, there didn’t appear to be much activity other than a few food stalls.
The new grade 3’s seem nice so far, although it is too early to tell, and of course one of those new students includes Kim Hee Yon, who I have blogged about on several occasions before.
The temperatures are beginning to rise but it’s taking longer to reach the 20 degrees that April 2012 consistently saw. The school building is still relatively cold and I still work with my winter coat on!
There are 17 teaching weeks remaining, and I can already feel myself winding down.
Tensions between North Korea and South Korea continue to fill the news headlines, as NK’s leader Kim Jong Un claims to have ended all non-aggressive pacts with SK and is now considering declaring war on SK and the USA.
Everybody here still considers these empty threats. Any aggression by NK would be suicidal considering America’s influence in SK and China’s disapproval of any disruptions to trade in the Korean peninsula. If anything kicks off then I will be on the first plane south to the Philippines – me love you long time.
