Another beautiful #spring day in #Seoul. Recently, I've been going #outside a lot more than I used to, and I'm not disliking it. The middle of this #park has a huge grass field where lots of people from the neighborhood were playing. #Korean parks are cute. 
#공원 #서울 #서리풀공원 #자연 #Easter? 
A #celebration, perhaps? 
A #chocolate-y feast?

A certain #Christian #holiday?

Why don't #Americans #celebrate Easter? #Spring is rearing its head but doesn't seem confident enough to really go for it yet. The weather is on point these days though. 
#Yonsei #연세대 #University #Seoul #Korea #SouthKorea #campus #서울 #봄 #building I was so tempted to add to the never ending torrent of #cherryblossom #벚꽃 pictures on instagram but instead I'm uploading this. #Spring is in the air in #Korea and the #Yonsei #campus is in bloom. 
Even though I was supposed to sit in my room working on a presentation all day, I'm glad I went out instead. 
#봄 #연세대 #Seoul #University #대학교 #SouthKorea #서울 #Korean #Confessions:
When I first came to #Korea, I thought the '녕' (nyeong) part of '#안녕' (annyeong) (Hello) sounded gay, so I just said '안녀' (annyeo) to everyone, unaware that just sounds like a bad pronunciation of '아뇨' (anyo) which means 'No'.
By now, of course, I know all about the beauty of the Korean #language and its sometimes gay #pronunciation ㅋㅋㅋ

Picture of my #classroom in #경희 where I #teach unrelated, but it made me think it looks just like my #Chinese #cartoons.
