It was so

nice to see all the other cultures represented. We even caught up with Ella who was at Oropi last year.

We were very lucky to have the Korean school come up to the hall to show the Year 5 and 6 classes since traditional hanbok costumes, how to write their name in Korean as well as some Korean games. They enjoyed learning all about the culture. 

Our Korean students also went into Ruru and Korimako to teach them how to count as well as make a traditional game ddakji, which is made using origami.

I have had an amazing few days in Korea attending the Korean Fsir in Seoul. Upon arriving I did a day of sight seeing in Seoul. I visited the Deoksugung Palace, Seoul Tower, Namsangoi Hanok Village, Gwanghwamun Palace. The city is very clean with lots of trees around. Even though there is 10 million people living it never feels lot there is lots of people. Everyone is very friendly and I have enjoyed the food.
