hello from Korea!
this place is so different from home, but at the same time it's not so different at all. i love the cherry blossom, the cute kids, the cute old people, how people try to help you and have conversations with you even though they don't speak English, how everything really is cute, all the small (funny) spelling mistakes there are made in written English, the few moments you actually can see the sky or meet someone to have a proper conversation with. i have developed a small addiction for bibimbap (rice + lots of vegetables + egg), bingsu (shaved ice in lots of tastes), some street food i don't know the name of (yet) and the weird sorts of milk soda and can't see enough high school couples in matching clothes and cute nerdy boys with the prettiest glasses made from wood (!) and business men playing children games on their phones.
