Cherry Blossom Fever

Cherry blossom fever has now spread to Seoul and now the entire city is sprinkled with pink blossoms. I have also joined the bandwagon of Koreans and foreigners and their obsession with the flowering trees. This weekend I caught some cherry blossom action near one of the ancient palaces in Jongro called Changdokgung and in Yeouido, which is the most famous place in Seoul for cherry blossoms.  A lot more people and a lot less cherry blossoms than Jinhae, but still very pretty. Enjoy the pictures.

  1. Hi Jen,

    I am reading your blogs with great interest. It is obvious you have settled in well with the South Korean culture, an experience of a life time. Your Aunt Barbara and I are looking forward to Sarah’s upcoming wedding and will miss you not being there.
