That’s right folks, I’m back in New Jersey for the first time in 5 weeks. Wow, it feels good to be back; I’ve been going around hugging all my furniture because I missed my house so much. I can’t believe how foreign my house looks to me right now…
I still have one more post left to upload from my second to last day in Korea (the last day we didn’t really do much except pack and go to the airport). I thought I’d get to doing it yesterday, but in all the last-minute confusion, I didn’t get around to it, so here it is.
The day before I left Korea, my friends (the few that were still in Korea) and I got together for a trip to Lotte World, which is pretty much THE amusement park to go to in Seoul. It also happens to be the largest indoor amusement park in the world, but that doesn’t stop it from leading to an outdoor attraction-ful area as well. Having both an indoor and outdoor play area makes Lotte World a pretty convenient place to go have fun in Korea’s temperamental climate.
It was a good thing there’s an indoor, air-conditioned area in Lotte World. It was crazy hot outside that day, so me and my friends would go on the rides outside, then head back in when the heat got too overwhelming.
Although it was fun chilling with my friends, I had to leave early after a while because I had a family dinner to go to; it was our final night in Korea, so all of my aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents on my mom’s side got together for a dinner at my g-parents’ apartment. Here are a few shots of everyone enjoying each others’ company.
Like last time, there was A TON of homemade food:
All made by these hard-working ladies:
And stuff was ordered too.
And these were brought by this guy:
It was a lot of good food, eaten with a wonderful family.
We were all so damn full after our meal, but of course a Korean meal wouldn’t be complete without fruit at the end. Other people might eat cake, or cookies, or pie, but NOPE, WE EAT FRUIT. BECAUSE WE’RE COOL LIKE THAT.
I had a great time just hanging out with my family, and I honestly can’t think of a better way to spend my last night in Seoul. I love all my aunts, and uncles, and cousins, and my grandma and my grandpa; I miss them already.
I just want to thank my family for everything they’ve done for me in Korea; it’s because of them that we were able to enjoy ourselves so much.
LEE FAMILY.. FIGHTING!
