Lunar New Year


Lunar New Year is a very big deal in Asia – an even bigger deal than Dec 31st. We were expecting fireworks and parades to be a big part of this day; however, it is more of a quiet family holiday in Korea – they all g home to see their family and celebrate together. To celebrate on Lunar New Year Eve, a group of us got together for dinner at the Samsung Hotel – it was great! We had happy hour, a big dinner, and went out on the town. It was a blast!

The Monday after was a holiday, so we had the day off work; we were blessed with an extremely beautiful day so we took full advantage of it by heading into the nearby town, Tongyeong. They have a cable car that takes you up to the top of a look out point which has a great view of the surrounding area. There’s one viewpoint where you can see Japan which is pretty cool.
