Chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving) runs from September 21-23. Yes, that is a Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday. And no, my school chose NOT to let us off easy and give us the monday or friday off.
|What Chuseok is supposed to look like|
After hearing that everyone usually clears out of Seoul for the holiday, we decided to plan a fun-filled few days. So The plans are as follows:
Friday, September 17: My BIRTHDAY!
Saturday, September 18: Getting as close as we can to North Korea on a tour of the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ)!
Sunday, September 19: Day hike in Seroksam National Park
Monday, Sept. 20: Work
Tuesday, Sept 21-Thursday, Sept 23: DeokJeok Island (guided hikes, beach time, etc)!
Friday, Sept 24: Korean Vegetarian Temple food cooking class!
I'll let you all know how it goes :)
