It’s been a while since I have updated this blog, but now that I am back in Korea I will update more frequently. Two days ago I arrived in Seoul. This summer I am going to be studying Korean at a hagwon (private academy) and sightseeing around the city. I am so excited to be back and can’t wait to have many more fun adventures
My apartment is in Eunpyeon gu, a district within Seoul.
So far I am really enjoying it here. The apartment is clean and has lots of amenities, like towels, soap, tissues, etc. so that is super convenient. The apartment is also in a great location. It’s close to the subway station and right next to a small river, perfect for walks. Below is a picture of the river and a street near my apartment.
I am also excited about the kitchen. I enjoy cooking so I imagine I will be using it a lot. Below is a picture of today’s lunch: potato pancakes, cherry tomatoes, sauteed bean sprouts, and some mango juice.
The apartment is also near lots of markets and grocery stores that I can walk to for fresh produce and food.
Along with the markets is a giant 8-story emart. It’s one of the biggest grocery stores I’ve been to, although I’ve heard there are even bigger ones here in Seoul (which is incredible).
So far I am enjoying life here in Seoul (despite the jet lag). I will update soon when I have more photos to post! Thanks for reading
