The Hi Seoul festival is a yearly festival put on in Seoul to celebrate the international community, as well as Korea’s history. I decided to check it out last weekend. I went to the City Hall area where there was an international exhibit including booths from many countries around the world. There were about 80 I think. However, Canada, USA, and Italy were missing.

It was a pretty cool experience. There was so much culture around. I was surprised how many different nationalities were there.


Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan. Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, and many many more.

In front of Seoul city hall, there is a big fountain what kids seem to love to play in. It was fun to watch them running around in the fountain. It reminded me of what it’s like to be a kid… but those days are long past.



After walking around for a bit, I decided to check out the “Changing of the Guards” ceremony that was happening at Deoksugung:


That is one bitchin’ stache.

  1. Mike,
    Looks like you’re having an amazing time in Korea. My mom is friends with one of your cousins and forwarded your blog to me. I will be teaching in Seoul soon enough — flying in on June 23rd. Just wondering if I could ask you a few questions about your experience teaching in Korea?
    Thanks so much!!
