Spring Flower Festival
After walking past the 1400 cherry trees, we decided to take a stroll through Yeouido Park which would be the "central park" of Seoul.
To end our festive experience, we decided to stop and watch some local talent and in return, we became local celebrities ourselves. Once the performer in the white glasses spotted us, he yells out, "Hello!" I wave and say hello back. Thinking that was it, he yells out, "Where are you from?" At this point, many people from the crowd split apart and motion for us to move forward. I tell him that we are from Canada and then he proceeds to tell the audience where we are from. Hundreds of eyes turn upon us then the performer asks, "What do you do?" and, "Do you like Korean food?" and finally he says, "Enjoy Korea!" All the people give out a loud applause and turn back to the entertainer. You would almost think that they had never seen two white people before.
