OCTOBER NOVEMBER 2006 Autumn in Korea

Autumn colours, first visit from the UK (via Mongolia) and Halloween party at Maja's school

sunny 15 °C

Autumn felt like the best season to be in Korea. With nice weather and the sun shining most of the days, it remained warm until nearly the end of october, mosqitoes made their way out of the country and it was a pure pleasure to spend time outdoors.

We had our first guest from the UK -Jim (hello Jim -thanks for the postcard)who stopped by on his way from trekking in Mongolia. It was good to see a friend from the UK and spent a couple of days sightseeing and catching up:

We also made a few trips to the parks to check out the reds, browns and yellows of the leaves. The autumn colours here are awesome !!!

To keep the little one happy we also made a trip to one of the biggest children leisure parks in Korea -Everland, which proved to be heaven for Maja and hell for us. Although we loved watching Maja having fun we struggled pushing through crowds and refusing to buy "the goodies" that seemed to accompany every attraction. We came back with headaches and Maja asleep in our arms which hardly ever happens.

It was coming up to Halloween so this was the main theme in the park. Halloween has definetely made its way to Korea - celebrations are in full swing in many places -including Maja's nursery.

We also made a little effort although the biggest out of all the parents:

.....we wanted to wish all our family and friends Happy Easter. Although Christmas celebrations are big here nobody really talks about Easter -fair enough although even Korean Christians that we know don't seem to be celebrating which is a bit strange.
Instead of hunting Easter Eggs which we couldn't find anywhere Maja had to look for a chocolate bunnie following the trace of colorfully wrapped sweets. Maja and Nick are off to watch a football game at the World Cup Stadium later on,while my ticket goes to waste as I stay in bed trying to get rid of a bug I must have caught somewhere right in time for Easter!
